Shipwrecks of the Northeast USA, a folded map from the National Geographic highlighting locations of more than 5400 shipwrecks along the coast of New England from the Canadian border to the Napatree Point in Rhode Island. Three panels provide enlargements presenting in greater detail the Boston Harbour area, Cape Cod with Nantucket, and the Narragansett Bay. This title is part of a series of shipwreck maps from the NGS covering the coastline of the eastern seaboard of Unites States. Each title shows locations of hundreds of wrecks atop beautifully drawn bathymetric and coastal detail. Wreck sites have symbols to define class and type of each vessel, along with its name and, where available, the date of sinking. Coloring indicates whether the vessel was lost in armed conflict or by natural causes. The maps also show locations of lighthouses and life boat stations, and include extensive historical notes. This title is also available as a wall map, on paper or encapsulated - please click on the series link for these two options and more titles in this series. With the light blue sea beautifully contrasted against the sepia-coloured land and several lovely historical drawings, these maps are designed to enhance the décor of any home or office and would look very attractive when framed.
