Wonderful working chart with hand annotations x Light on Cape Leeuwin ???secs vis 20 miles elev 185ft. Also a small drawing in ink by the same hand of Bald Island West 18’ + white sand patch Mt Many peak. This is the earliest of this chart we have seen. Clearly it has been used in Western Australian waters and we can assume that this map was used regularly for the international postal route from India to Albany.
