"Coast Chart No. 20. New York Bay and Harbor. New York."

Washington: U.S. Coast Survey, 1866, corrected to 1879. Separately issued U.S. coastal chart; sheet 20. 32 1/2 x 26 1/8. Lithograph. With considerable spotting, especially on verso, some light stains, and creases/wrinkles, all from use. Some manuscript navigational marks. 

A highly detailed chart showing New York Harbor and Bay, a fine example of the output of the U.S. Coast Survey. This chart shows evidence of heavy use, perhaps being used by a ship based in New York City. Soundings and other navigational details are precisely depicted throughout the map. Also included are sailing directions and tables on tides and currents. Precise and minute interior information is given for Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.
