A rare hand colored 1857 nautical chart of the Ipswich and Annisquam Harbors. These two important ports are located just north Boston near Cape Ann. Both were centers of for the cod fishing and whaling industries in the 18th and 19th centuries. Today they are popular tourist destinations. The chart itself covers from Ipswich in the west to Annisquam in the east, shows the various bays and estuaries in between. Unlike many coastal charts, this example also has significant inland detail, showing roads, towns, farms, and some topographical features. Countless depth soundings throughout. Sailing instructions and notes on tides and magnetic variation appear in the upper right quadrant. The triangulation for this nautical chart was completed by C.O. Boutelle. The Topography is the world of H. L Whiting. The hydrography was accomplished by parties under the command of M. Woodhull, S. D. Trenchard, and C. R. P. Rodgers. Published under the supervision of A. D. Bache for the 1853 Report of the Superintendent of the U.S. Coast Survey .
