Description:

Scarce hydrographic chart of Cook Strait, New Zealand, surveyed by Captain J.L. Stokes, Commander B. Drury. First issued 10th August 1859, this a new survey made on 4th January 1911 with small corrections to August 1911.

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 As updated charts were offered for sale, the earlier outdated charts in the hands of mariners, pilots, ships owners and sailors were invariably discarded, subsequently making all British Admiralty issued hydrographic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 but the first issue much more so.
