How about a complete map of the Crimea showing military and carriage roads,post stations,lighthouses,fortified places and battle sites(Such as the landing of the Anglo-French army,14 Sept.1854,Kalamita Bay)with distances from various points of the western coast from English and Russian surveys..Published by Charles deSilver,Philadelphia..1856..
OR...
A chart of the Baltic from Admirility and Russian surveys showing ,among other things the fortification of Cronstadt and St petersburg.The batteries at Cronstadt..showing the placement of 100 Paixhans guns,120pounders,that guarded the entrance harbour of St Petersburg...
Charles deSilver,Philadelphia..1856..

Are you interested in a pilot's guide (maritime, not airplane) for the St. Lawrence River, circa 1947?

Dave I know the shop outside the Menin Gate, I was there in May..I thought his prices were really high...everything cost FAR more there than anywhere else I had seen the same items.

Bruce..does the guide have charts...I need to see the old shoreline of the St Lawrence River..before they raised it..I have a pilots guide from the 30s..but only words, no maps pr charts.

Thank you

Dean

Dean, here's one on ebay.
western front map

Original very large WWI Battle Sector Map of Belgium & Part of France. It is dated "Enemy Organisation Oct. 15, 1918".

This is authentic AND WAS ACTUALLY USED and brought back by Lt. Salter of the 32nd Battery of the Canadian Field Artillery, in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. THIS IS A HEAVY LINEN MAP TO HELP PREVENT WEAR rather than the more common paper.

The map opens up to approx. 33" x 22". It shows all the roads in detail and a number of towns, all in a numbered and lettered grid. The legend describes and the map shows many supply and ammunition dumps, camp areas and hutments, balloons and their normal points of ascent, airline junctions, telephone offices, and both foot and traffic bridges. Also, railways (used and unused, with the guage written), single huts or shelters, red cross signs, and aerodromes and hangers. Loads of things included on the map. The map shows a number of towns including Orchies, Genech, Watters, Bruille, Maubray, Roucourt, etc., as well as hills, geographic points, marshes, rivers, etc.

This map was actually used by artillery outfits during the war in determining coordinates for artillery barrages that this officer participated in. The map is divided into a grid pattern, from A through X. Each of these lettered sections is further divided into 36 numbered squares. This is all for the purposes of directing artillery fire coordinates.

Shows a little use because this WAS THERE AND WAS USED, but condition is excellent overall, considering its active use. No splits or tears. This is a really nice piece for display with a variety of collections. Quite suitable for framing. It is quite unusual to find any type of original military war-dated map from WWI, let alone an artillery barrage map, let alone one that was used and is identified to the owner, and let alone one in linen.

Mine is a list of things to look out for, much like yours, only dated 1946. It has one fold out map that is an index to the charts that were available at the time. I'll also correct myself (having actually found the book and therefore not relying on memory): it's the Gulf of St. Lawrence Pilot. While looking for it, I found a linen map of the Aldershot District (North), owned by a Mr. Rayison (?), Captain, Assistant Provost Marshal, Canadians, Egham, Surrey, stamped as received by the Orderly Room, 2nd Sept. 1917. I should really spend more time digging into my book shelves!!
