Description:

Important large hydrographic chart of the Queensland coast, extending from Moreton Bay to Danger Point (Coolangatta) from surveys conducted by E.P. Bedwell. First issued 1869, from the new survey February 1889, with small corrections to 1940.

The regular updating of Hydrographic charts by the Hydrographic Office was to ensure that commanders of ships, pilots and other mariners were able to have the most to up to date information available to safely navigate foreign waters and ports as new information of changes to sea depths, sand bars, wrecks or other any other pertinent nautical information that could hinder passage became available. As updated charts were offered for sale, the earlier outdated charts in the hands of mariners, pilots, ships owners and sailors were invariably discarded, subsequently making all British Admiralty issued hydrographic charts of the period rare.

Edward Parker Bedwell (1834 - 1919)

Naval hydrographer. Edward was born on 22 February 1834, the son of Edward Parker Bedwell and Harriet Drew, at St. Heliers, Jersey.
