Harbour of Casco Bay, Portland, 1720

Contributed by Tate House Museum

Description

Cyprian Southack (1662-1745) drew his map "Harbour of Casco Bay and islands adjacent" in the 1690s.

The English Pilot officially printed it in 1720.

Eventually a similar map was redrawn and printed in 1764 by John Mount, a London publisher. Between the 1690s and the 1740s, Southack drew 20 known maps of North America’s eastern coast. These charts were crucial navigation aids.
