Early charts of ports on Adak and Amchitka in Aleutian Islands, Alaska

DESCRIPTION: Interesting original US Coast Survey charts of harbors on two islands in Alaska, Adak and Amchitka, way out in the Bering Sea near the end of the Aleutian Island chain. Reason for publishing this scarce chart is likely because each harbor contains an indicated Astronomical Station.
