Original Old Rare Historic Antique Nautical Chart of Duch Island Harbor 1862

Beautiful rare hand colored chart published by the United States Coast Survey in 1862.   Published during the Civil war, these charts were extremely important from  a military standpoint. Chart shows great detail including numerous soundings, information on tides,  locations of buoys marking obstructions. The triangulation for the survey was performed in 1843, but the soundings were not completed for another 19 years. The Chart was published under the direction of Alexander D Bache, the second superintendant of the United States Coast Survey and the triangulation by Edmund Blunt.
