Halleys chart Atlantick Ocean on a Globular Projection

A New and Correct Chart of the Atlantick Ocean Reduced describing part of the coasts of Europe, Africa and America with their adjacent islands.

DESCRIPTION: Scarce antique chart on a globular projection by scientists Nathaniel Cutler and Edmund Halley (the latter the discoverer of Halley's comet). Shows the western coastline of Europe with a broad expanse of the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Includes North America, East Mexico, the Caribbean Islands (Cuba, Hispaniola, Martinique, Antigua and more), and the East Coast of Europe and of Africa. Greatly exaggerates the length of the Saint John's River in Florida.

From "Atlas Maritimus & Commercialis, or a General View of the World, so Far as Relates to Trade and Navigation …". The sea atlas "Atlas Maritimus" was a collaborative effort of a number of the leading cartographic and scientific names of the era, including English astronomer Sir Edmund Halley, John Senex, Nathaniel Cutler, and Daniel Defoe. The atlas was developed by publishers Senex and Harris to compete with Mount & Page’s English Pilot. Published from London: James and John Knapton et al.
