Sea chart of the coast from Crail to Aberdeen on Scotland’s east coast, with inset maps of Aberdeen and Montrose harbours. Soundings and rhumb lines, ornamental cartouche at lower left with dedication to the magistrates of Aberdeen. Captain Greenvile Collins was an outstanding naval officer who became ‘Hydrographer to the King’ before the Coasting Pilot was published. The Coasting Pilot was the result of the first systematic survey of British coastal waters. It took eight years to complete. The charts are notable for both their accuracy and their charm
