This is an exceptional example of the 1851 U.S. Coast Survey's progress chart for the coasts of Virginia and North Carolina. Covers from Cape Henry, Virginia, south past the Pamlico Sound and Cape Hatteras, to Cape Fear. It was here, looking over the Pamlico Sound, that Giovanni de Verrazano proudly and foolishly declared that he had discovered a route to the Pacific. The map shows triangulation points throughout the regions as well as all major islands, rivers, and inlets. Albemarle Sound and Pamlico Sound are shown in full. Several coastal cities are noted. Lighthouses, rivers, beaches and other sites identified.Progress maps of this sort were made to illustrate work of the survey and accompanied the Superintendent of the Survey's annual report to Congress. Prepared under the supervision of A. D. Bache, one of the most influential and prolific Superintendents of the Coast Survey, and issued in the 1851 edition of the Superintendent's Report.
