Copper-engraved sea chart, 20 x 27 inches with approximately 1 inch margins. Uncoloured as issued, On the top right are profiles of the appearance of the high land to northward of Romney Marsh showing the Chapel at Court at Street as a sea mark. On the left is the appearance of the Land of Beachy Head and Fairleigh when on Dung-ness Shoal. Below this is Directions for Sailing and safe anchorage sites east and west of the point.
A scarce chart of the Dungeness peninsula from Winchelsea in the west to Dymchurch in the east. This "new" shoal west of the Ness is now marked on modern charts as "Stephenson's Shoal" so this is probably the one of the first charts marking this sand-bank.
