Massachusetts Bay and Coast from Chatham to Gloucester 2

Geo. W. Eldridge's Chart D Massachusetts Bay and the Coast from Chatham to Gloucester

DESCRIPTION: Extra-large old nautical chart of Cape Cod, Massachusetts Bay, and the Massachusetts coast from Chatham north past Boston. Created by George Washington Eldridge (d. 1914). Coverage includes the coastal margins near the towns of Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet, Brewster, Yarmouth, Plymouth, Scituate, Cohasset, Marblehead, Salem, Gloucester, and the town and harbor of Boston, Massachusetts. Date printed in blue stamp "1901".

Printed on thin, rolled paper, this nautical chart was to be backed with linen which would have provided the strength needed to withstand rigors of day to day use at sea. This chart is a survivor.

G.W. Eldridge was the son of well-known cartographer and hydrographer George Eldridge (1821-1900), whose first charts (ca. 1849) were of the area off Chatham, Mass. including Pollock Rip and the sandbars from Stone Horse to Handkerchief Shoals. The Eldridges are among the best known private publishers of charts during the 19th century.
