Large cloth-backed paper nautical chart dated 1862 with handmade copper case. 36" x 49" (case 41" long). General Chart of the North Atlantic Ocean by Charles Copley, hydrographer, with pencil marks from several voyages (one dated 1892) by sailors, possibly whalers, traveling between England and the eastern seaboard from Nova Scotia to Florida, on a cloth-and-paper map which fits nicely in a lidded copper tube. Much wear and tear to the map edges but the rest in good condition with typical foxing.
