LOC:90
$250.00Mannevillette--d-ApresAntique-nautical-chart-of-the-Bangka-or-Banca-StraitAntique nautical chart of the Detroit du Banca or Bangka Strait from 1775 by Jean-Baptiste-Nicolas-Denis D’ Après de Mannevillette (1707 – 1780). Inset chart of a smaller strait between the Isle de Sel and part of Biliton Island or Belitung Island. That strait lies approximately 70 miles to the east of south Bangka Island. <br><br> The map is particularly interesting historically as it incorporates paste-over corrections to the eastern portion of the Isle de Banca with the previously charted coastline still faintly visible beneath the corrections. According to a pasted note at bottom left, the pasted corrections to the northeast of Bangka Island were based on the observations of M. Crozet. Julien Crozet was second in command during the French expedition of Marion De Fresne to Tasmania, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, sailing in 1771. Crozet assumed command of the expedition after the voyage's commander, Marion De Fresne, and 26 crew members were killed by the Maori Ngare Raumati tribe off the coast of New Zealand in June 1772. <br><br> Bangka Strait is the narrow body of water that separates the island of Sumatra from the Indonesian island of Bangka. Bangka is one of the world's most important tin-producing areas.

Third edition. These historical charts from 1916 predate the U.S. Government's ownership of the route which later became part of the Intracoastal Waterway (ICWW) . Placed end to end, the charts would extend over 18 feet long. <br><br> Includes the 94 page Coast Survey Sailing Directions that once housed the 8 charts in an attached interior envelope. Card cover. Binding intact. Price when issued was 20 cents. <BR> </BR> A bit of research shows that in its early history some portions of the inside route were owned and dredged by private entities who charged a toll to vessels for passage, sometimes by stringing a chain across narrow passages to restrict traffic flow. In fact, chart 7 contains manuscript pencil annotations, obviously made during a voyage, of "Toll" and "Toll chain" that reflects that little-known fact. Interestingly, the toll chains are not noted as part of the official chart. After 1919 Congress mandated that the entire passage should be turned over to the Federal government and the tolls were eliminated.<BR> </BR> Size of each chart when folded is approximately 8" x 5". These 8 lithographed working navigational charts capture the full extent of the eastern U.S. inside route in detail with some manuscript pencil annotations, especially in Florida.

Streets shown include the existing Lee Highway and Wilson Dam Highway (South Wilson Dam Road), and the proposed Center Drive, Shoals Boulevard, and Lakeside Drive, East Lakeside Drive and two bridle paths. <br><br> <b>Background: </b>After the outbreak of WWI Congress passed the National Defense Act of 1916 which, provided for construction of several new dams and for two nitrate plants. Nitrates, formerly sourced from Chile, were used in explosives and were deemed critical to the war effort. The nitrate plants were to be located in Muscle Shoals with the nearby Wilson Dam (then under construction) to provide power for the plants. The first nitrates were produced from these plants in November of 1918. The war ended before completion of the dam and eventually the Government offered the incomplete Wilson Dam for public sale. Henry Ford (Detroit, Michigan) made an offer to pay for completion of the dams and the nitrate plants in return for a 99-year lease. Ford's vision was to build a city 75 miles wide, employing over 1 million workers. Ford's involvement caused a land boom. Politics ensued, Ford withdrew his offer, and the land boom faded. <br></br> Sources:<br> Kazek, Kelly. "Could Muscle Shoals have been a hub rivaling Detroit? Henry Ford thought so".
