Historic Jersey Maps - 84p Sheet of Ten

£8.40

The 84p stamp illustrates the map produced by Dobree in 1746. In 1744 HMS Victory was wrecked on Les Casquets, off the coast of Guernsey, with the loss of her entire crew. As a result of this, Nicholas Dobree was commissioned by the Lord High Admiral of Great Britain to produce a set sea charts detailing the waters around the Bailiwick and as a result this map of Jersey was created, detailing the banks, shoals, rocks and soundings surrounding her.
