Manzanilla Bay to the Gulf of California including the Revilla Gigedo Islands from U.S. Government charts of 1873 - 1913. [1926]

DESCRIPTION: Amazing, clean, authentic British nautical chart of lower Baja Peninsula and west coastal Mexico with Sinaloa, Jalisco and the Sea of Cortez. Heading southward this popular and highly attractive chart covers from San Ignaciao Bay to Manzanillo Bay. This large chart will make a very attractive, unusual, and affordable gift for anyone with an interest in fishing or boating in the vicinity of Baja California. Thousands of depth soundings and numerous well-known fishing spots are noted including: San Jaime Bank, Golden Gate Bank, Outer Gorda Bank, Finger Bank, and Morgan Bank. Two inset profile views at top of the Baja Californa coast as seen from offshore near Las Animas.

Later edition of a British Admiralty chart first engraved and published from London in 1879; this edition to 1916 and the last corrections made in 1926. Coverage includes the lower Baja California Peninsula and Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) from Las Animas to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Mazatlan, Cape Corrientes, and on to Manzanillo Bay. Contains detailed names of the numerous rivers, lights, capes, and bays surrounding the Baja Peninsula. Includes the Revillagigedo Archipelago.

Bold dark lithographed print retains the cartographic look and style of the late 19th century. More recent charts do not display the character of this beauty. Logo of the British Hydrographical Office at top of the title block. Originally published from London on April 9, 1879 but the edition of 1916 with corrections to 1926. Number 2323.
