Large folding chart on thick paper ("Navigation thorugh the Eastern Channel, and Chanel Creek with the boat-track of Captain Cumberlege, in his survey of the depths of water between Sauger Sand and Light House Sand" on a scale of 2 Nautic Miles to 1 inch, with small hand coloured inset of harboue on a reduced scale), 62pp. Disbound as a single text block, title page rather grubby and with very small old library stamp, the map very clean and neatly folded. British Parliamentary Paper No 289. The dangers of the approach to Calcutta at the mouth of the Hooghly had long given risae to the search for ana lternative channel and Lacam's new harbour was begun in 1770. The paper contains several accounts by surveyors and captains of East Indiamen in the search for safer passages. The handsome map, which gives both old and new soundings gives the further information: "The dots and anchors exhibit the Track of the Charlton East Indiaman Captain John A Cumberlege in the Stormy Monsoon of 1801 with Soundings in her Passage up the South Entrance leading to new Harboue from Sea without Beacons Buoys or a Pilot. The Ships Hawk, Bangalore, Cuddy, Bucas, and Popham experienced the same advantages, all passing through New Harbour into the Hughly River." Size: Folio. N° de ref. de la librería 007938
