Original Rare Old Historic Antique Nautical Chart showing New Haven Harbor 1838

Extremely scarce, the United States Coast Survey produced this New Haven Harbor chart in 1838. New Haven Harbor is one of the earliest charts published by the Coast Survey.  It was published as an extract from a Letter from the secretary of the treasury transmitting a map of New Haven and its harbor February 18th, 1839. This two sheet set is the third Coast Survey Chart ever published and is the first chart of New Haven Harbor published by the United States government. Shown are numerous soundings, shoals and other dangers as well as beautiful detail of the topography. This may be the second chart first produced by the US Coast survey following the chart of Bridgeport, reportedly published in 1835.
