Maker: U.S. Light-House Service.
Fifth Lighthouse District. Antique printed color chart of lighthouses along the coasts of Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, also showing Chesapeake Bay, Albemarle Sound, the Outer Banks, and Pamlico Sound. Published in the Annual Report of the Light-House Board of the United States to the Secretary of the Treasury, c. 1877, showing all light houses, light ships, and the arcs of illumination for major lights, as well as a key to the kind and color of light, such as Fixed Red, Flashing White, etc. We believe this to be the first edition, published around 1877, because it does not indicated what date it has been corrected to. With fold, as issued. Very good overall antique condition with mild toning throughout that is slightly darker at the fold. Measures approximately 10.25" x 8" (H x W) to the neatline.
