Light damp staining along left edge, some filled, small insect holds lower left corner, overall very good, especially given the nature of the paper on which it was printed. An American imprint of great importance and rarity: one of the earliest American-made charts to focus on the Georgia coastline. It depicts the area from just north of Kiawah Island in central South Carolina to the mouth of the St. John River in northern Florida. At lower right is an inset: "A Chart of the Bar and Harbour of Charlestown.¿ In 1791 John Norman of Boston first published "The American Pilot, containing the navigation of the sea coast of North America¿." This work was the second sea atlas published in America, the first being by William Clark, published in 1789-1790. Published in just a single edition, Clark¿s atlas and its individual charts are even more rare on the market than those from the extremely rare Norman work. Norman played a key role in the production of Clark's Pilot, as the engraver of the majority of its charts. In 1794, Norman¿s son, William, became the publisher of the Pilot and went on to issue subsequent editions in 1796, 1798, and 1803. Despite these several editions, this and all Norman charts have always been great rarities on the market. The copy offered here corresponds to Wheat & Brun¿s State II, which they date 1798.
