Bellin 1764

Carte des Entrees de la Tamise

A coastal map, but names towns as far inland as Saffron Walden.

It shows sandbanks and spot depths, but I doubt it was ever used for navigation.

Displayed scale of 10 "Lieues Communes" = 53.5mm, or 16.4 miles/inch; actual scale = 15.0 miles/inch, or 1:950,000. (Better scaling than on his 1759 map!)

Outside top right there is: Tome IV No 4.
