Chart of the Sea Coast between ENGLAND and FRANCE, as also of SPAIN, PORTUGAL, part of ITALY, and BARBARY; including so much of the MEDITERRANEAN SEA as Is likely to be the Seat of War
A chart showing the coastline of Southwestern Europe and surrounding waters. Two large, crisscrossing compass roses show rhumb lines around the Bay of Biscay and the Mediterranean. The larger compass rose sites in the Mediterranean Sea. Many of the coastal annotations are perpendicular to the coastlines, reminiscent of the Thames school of mapmakers. Inland features are ignored save for major capitals. Perimeter scale bar in leagues.
There is no scale bar, and London is used for the prime meridian.
