A fine New Hampshire/Maine chart from Des Barres' great opus The Atlantic Neptune, his comprehensive survey of the eastern seaboard of North America, commissioned by the British Admiralty, surveyed from 1763 to 1774, and engraved back in London 1774-1779. The quality and accuracy of the completed charts was renown, and although Des Barres waited a while for payment for his endeavours, he was able to acquire large tracts of land in the Canadian Maritimes, and at 83 was appointed Governor of Prince Edward Island. He died at Halifax aged 102. Phillips Atlases 1198.
