A CHART | of the Coasts of | IRELAND | and Part of ENGLAND
Sold by Willm.Mount & Thos.Page on Tower Hill.

Following the Dutch dominance in the production of sea charts, the series of English Pilot books was started by John Seller in 1671 and was republished and augmented with additional charts through 37 editions until 1794. 

This chart of the coasts of Ireland is from an edition pubished by William Mount (1688-1769) and Thomas Page (1704-1762) about 1756. Despite the popularity and large number of editions of the work, due to it's practical nature and use, the atlas or charts from any edition are uncommon. 

A good example, with only a couple of minor edge nicks to margin outside printed area repaired with archival tape and a very slight diagonal crease running through the Isle of Man.
