"New York Entrance."

Washington: U.S. Coast Survey, 1875, corrected to 1884. Separately issued U.S. coastal chart. 31 1/4 x 38 1/2. Lithograph. Some manuscript navigational marks. Otherwise, Very good condition. 

A highly detailed chart showing the entrance to New York Harbor, another good example of the output of the U.S. Coast Survey. This separately issued chart shows the approach to the Verrazzano Narrows, with the New Jersey coast in the lower left, Staten Island in the upper left, and the southwestern tip of Long Island (including Coney Island) in the upper right. The chart was intended for use for navigation (price 50 cents) and it contains all navigational information necessary for a ship's captain. Soundings and other navigational details are precisely depicted throughout the map. Also included are sailing directions and tables on tides, currents, and lighthouses. It is particularly interesting for the precise and highly detailed information of the interior of the coasts shown, with fields, roads, building and topography clearly delineated.
