Chart of the North Sea showing sea routes between England and the coasts of Holland, the Low Countries and France.

The information is based on the surveys of G. Collins. An attempt is made to show the dangerous nature of the waters through the presence of numerous sand banks and shallows. Important commercial routes are shown as if they were roads on the sea. A small but elaborate compass rose is present on the upper centre. [GB2016]
