Blueback chart Gulf of Nicoya to San Blas Central America.

Chart of the Western Coast of North America extending from the Gulf of Nicoya to San Blas Compiled chiefly from the Spanish Surveys, the whole much improved from the observations of Captain Beechey R.N. and Commander Belcher R.N.

DESCRIPTION: Antique blue back sea chart for the west coast of South America from Cape Corrientes in the state of Jalisco, Mexico trending southeast to Coiba Island, Panama about 275 miles south of the Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica. Published in 1849, during the California Gold Rush when clipper ships would have needed comprehensive navigational guidance along both coasts of South America, especially to ports and harbors for revictualling and repair. Includes seven engraved inset coastal elevation views.

Part 7 of an 8-chart series by James Imray for the navigation of the East and West Coast of America. Scarce, only one sale recorded of this chart in the AMPR.

Inset harbor charts include: Port Sihuatanijo, Port Acapulco, Port Guatulco, Port San Carlos, Realejo Harbour, Salinas Bay, Port Culebra, and San Blas.
