Nautical chart of the Azores from the first book of the groundbreaking English Pilot.


A fine and early English navigational chart of the Azores appeared for the first time in the English Pilot First Part, Southern Navigation (1729).  It was not uncommon for the books of the Pilot to be bound in one volume and used aboard English trading vessels.

John Seller initiated The English Pilot series, publishing his first sea atlas in 1671, after which it was updated and issued on many occasions; the publishing rights passed on to William Fisher and John Thornton, Richard Mount, Thomas Page, and their families.
