St. Simon's Sound, Brunswick Harbor and Turtle River Georgia.

Washington. 1875. Printed on heavy stock; a bit of crinkling but never folded. Light soiling and staining consistent with use as a working chart. 19 x 28 3/4. Item #3589

A richly detailed chart of the entrance to the Turtle River including a street grid for the town of Brunswick. Alexander Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth's brother, is credited with the triangulation and topography of the chart. The only feature identified on Jekyl [sic] Island is Dubignon's House. Detailed sailing directions appear just to the left of the title. The chart is dated 1860; notes on it indicate it was prepared between 1855 and 1860, and buoys were corrected to 1875.
