To sail the oceans needed skill as well as courage, and the sea chart was the tool by which ships of trade, transport or conquest navigated their course. This book looks at the history and development of the chart and the nautical map as a means of safe and accurate seaborne navigation.
The delivery of the content, balanced with beautiful illustrations of early charts, makes The Sea Chart a great addition to any seafarer's nautical library. Lifeboat Magazine.
