Geographic coverage on this antique chart extends from Sabine Pass, Texas ( Cabo del Norte ) to Appalachicola Bay in the Florida Territory. <br></br> This first-edition British copper-engraved navigational chart documents the lack of of knowledge about Chandeleur Sound (1775) where a note about the waters inside those barrier islands states "Shallow water with many small islands but very little known". In the later second state (not shown) the depiction of the sound is updated with greater detail (Breton Island, Grandgosier Island) and the placename "Bay of Spiritu Santu" fills in what we now call Chandeleur Sound. Bayou Lafourche is labeled "Chetimachas River" after the Chitimacha Indians who were known to inhabit the area near Donaldsonville, La. Barataria Bay is labeled "Lake Ouachas". <br></br> A decorative flotilla graces the middle of our chart, highlighting a dashed lne from west to southeast.

Direction of the Gulf Stream current is shown visually by arrows supplemented with written notations indicating the compass direction at several locations across the stream. <br></br> The map may be considered to be an example of persuasive cartography. The concept of the Gulf Stream was novel at that time (hence the "supposed"); many mariners had not fully adopted the notion when this map was published.

Includes Pensacola Bay, Escambia Bay, Garcon Point, Blackwater River, Perdido Beach, Mast Bay, Forster's Island, and Fort Pickens. Chart shows the triangulation network employed an early survey conducted by the U.S. Coast [and Geodetic] Survey in 1849. Changes in topography inland are indicated by hachuring. <br></br> In surveying, triangulation is the process of determining the location of a point by measuring only angles to it from known points at either end of a fixed baseline. The point can then be fixed as the third point of a triangle with one known side and two known angles. Surveying error is minimized if first a mesh of triangles is created at the largest appropriate scale. Then points inside the triangles can all then be accurately located with reference to the triangulation network.

Made by engineer H. J. Campbell during a period of intensive agricultural growth, facilitated by numerous railroads in the area. The plat is dotted with numerous small unnamed lakes and sinkholes, a product of Florida's' limestone Karst topography. Hand drawn plat on tracing cloth- the map would have been used to generate blueprints on cyanotype paper. Scale 1 inch = 400 feet. <br></br> Top of map shows Reddick (established 1882) as a small settlement with a portion of the right of way for the Florida Southern Railroad. The Florida Southern Railway stopped in Reddick as early as 1881. The line went into receivership on March 19, 1890 and when it emerged in 1892 it was acquired by Henry B. Plant as part of his Plant System and reorganized as the Florida Southern Railroad, which stretched from Gainesville through Reddick to Ocala and then to Punta Gorda. <br></br> Starting in 1790, Spain offered land grants to encourage settlement to the sparsely populated and vulnerable Florida colony. When the United States assumed control of Florida, it agreed to honor any valid land grants. Portions of the map include lands near Reddick, Florida granted to Stephen Fernandez in 1817 or 1818. Engineer H.J. Campbell drew a number of town plats in the Marion County area including Stanton and South Lake Weir. The earliest record of Campbell places him in Gainesville, Florida and in 1884 Campbell moved his office to Palatka, Florida.

The Okeehumkee, also known as "Queen of the Ocklawaha River," was a 84' x 21'river steamboat that provided transportation along Florida rivers in the late 19th century. The Okeehumkee was equipped with a paddle wheel positioned in the lower stern part of the boat which allowed it to traverse narrow and shallow rivers. <br></br> The steamer Okeehumkee was built in 1873 by Hubbard Hart, founder of the Ocklawaha Navigation Company's Hart's Line, at his East Palatka Hart's Point shipyard. It was named after a Native American chief from the area of the Ocklawaha lakes. The boat was outfitted with shutters on the windows to keep tree branches out and a livestock pen at the rear of the boat, on the upper deck. The boat was altered several times throughout its service lifetime. In 1893, a second deck of cabins was added. In 1919, Hart's Line ceased operation and the Okeehumkee was moored at Hart's Point shipyard in East Palatka. <br></br> In 1883 Lady Duffus Hardy published a <a href="https://books.google.com/books?id=-Iw-AAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=inauthor:%22Lady+Duffus+Hardy%22&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjJvM-_nNHTAhXQZiYKHWdED4sQ6AEIJzAA#v=onepage&q&f=false" target="_blank">vivid account</a> of her trip aboard the Okeehumkee on the Oklawaha River from Silver Springs, Florida to Palatka. Lady Hardy relates how pine logs were burned in a large cauldron at the top of the vessel to provide illumination at night. "Now the blue flame flashes up to the great tree tops, then darts downward like a fiery serpent, and up some winding water lane, and for a second, a thousand weird forms float before our eyes, and change and fade and melt into nothingness."

Data on the artillery includes the location and type of armament including the 16″ BLR (breech loading rifle), 12″, 10″, 8″ BLR, Dynamite Guns, 12″ Mortars, and quick loading guns. From a collection of the papers of General Thomas Ruger, late in his career. <br></br> In 1886 the Board of Fortifications, led by Secretary of War William C. Endicott, issued a report (Endicott Report) on the need for changes to the armament along the coastal forts of America. The use of mortared brick walls and smoothbore cannon were outdated. <br></br> Endicott era forts were constructed with concrete walls that concealed large, breech-loading rifled artillery guns mounted on "disappearing carriages". These carriages allowed the new, rifled cannons to be raised above the walls, aimed, and fired, and then quickly retrieved back into position. (Source: https://www.nps.gov/gate/learn/historyculture/endicotteradefenses.htm) <br></br> Along with the 19 charts are six spreadsheets containing tabular compilations of the count and size of artillery at each location. Includes a personal letter to Ruger from his papers. <br></br> Thomas H. Ruger (1833-1907) was born in New York and grew up in Wisconsin. Ruger graduated the U.S. Military Academy in 1854. He was commissioned in the Wisconsin Volunteers during the Civil War; wounded at the Battle of Antietam and participated in eastern battles such as Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, before being transferred to Sherman’s Army and the famous march to the sea. Following the Civil War, Ruger was military governor of Georgia, Superintendent at West Point, and commanding general of the Department of the East from 1895-1897. <br></br> See Endicott Report online : https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101059089340&view=1up&seq=7

As a soft medium, copper plates could only withstand print runs of perhaps 200 copies before the plates wore down. To enable larger print runs, a mold of the original plate was created in wax or another soft medium. Then, using an electro-chemical process ( electrotyping ), the mold was coated with a metal layer, typically copper. Printers were then able to produce output from the new electrotype copper copy, while preserving the original. Electrotype copy no. 1.

Contains a inset location sketch, or context map of the islands, at a scale of 1" - 2640 feet. This plat map would have been used in the post-Depression era when sales on the Sunset Islands were rebounding. Date included for each lot to be sold included lot dimensions and price. <br></br> Note this an original 1938 one-of-a-kind blueline plat. It is not a modern reprint, copy, facsimile or giclee. Guaranteed. <br></br> Sunset Islands (I,II,III,IV) are four man-made islands located in Biscayne Bay and are home to some of Miami's richest and best known residents. <br></br> The Sunset Islands were developed by the Sunset Islands Company, headed by Steven. A. Lynch (1882-1969), President of Paramount Pictures. The islands were first platted in 1925. The Sunset Canals were dredged in 1926. Just as the Great Depression struck, Lynch finished filling the islands. <br></br> Despite Lynch's early start during the Florida 1920's land boom, construction of new homes on The Sunset Islands did not start in earnest until a decade later, in part because of delaying tactics employed by rival Miami developer Carl Fisher and also due to the slowdown in development during the land-boom crash of the Great Depression. Lynch built a residence on the southwest corner of Sunset Island II named "Sunshine Cottage." <br></br> The Sunset Islands were among the last man-made islands created in Biscayne Bay. This plat of the Sunset Islands from 1938 shows only about 25% of the lots with homes on them and almost 50% of the lots left unsold at that time Prices ranged from as low as $2,000 for small interior lots to $29,000 or even $30,000 for a .85 acre lot with 183 feet of waterfront on Sunset Island II.

When multiple editions of Allyn's fishing map exist for the same area, they may provide a good source of information about changes over time to the aquatic environment and to fish populations. Allyn's chart # 1B. <br></br> Clearly shows the immediate effect of a new dam across Long Bayou built in the 1940's at Park Blvd. N., then Oakhurst. The dam was intended to turn part of a salt-water estuary into a freshwater lake, Lake Seminole, with water level controlled by a weir along the south side of the lake. When this fishing chart is compared to Allyn's first edition made before the dam was constructed, it is clear chart that the dam was a huge success. Lake Seminole is shown swollen with water, and Allyn notes abundant fresh-water fish rather than the trout and redfish that previously inhabited the salt-water Long Bayou. <br></br> <img src="/ZoomifyImages/SC_4876/SC_4876_Detail.gif" alt="Comparison Photographs of Allyn's Seminole Lake" width="350px" align="left" style="margin: 0px 0px"> <br></br> As is often the case with projects that change the environment, after decades they bring about unexpected consequences.
