STEEL & CO. [Blue-Back Chart of the Bay of Biscay]
The Bay of Biscay, From the Latest Original Executed at the French Depot Marine. Embellished with Views Taken by Admiral Knight. Second Edition. Revised and Corrected Octr. 25th, 1813. London: 1813, coloured, 690 x 830mm. Backed onto blue paper as issued. Some faint staining.
A detailed chart of the Bay of Biscay from Ushant to Cape Finisterre in northern Spain, with four inset charts of harbours and rivers, and coastal profiles after Knight, a Rear Admiral of the Blue. Published during the Napoleonic War the chart is apparently based on a captured French chart. However, on verso is the label of Arbon & Krup, a firm of chart sellers in Rotterdam: the Dutch were allies of the French in the war.
