    Maps and Charts at Mystic Seaport
    From: Bruce J. Pennino

    Hello:
     
    Just read an article in  Spring/summer  Mystic Seaport Magazine about their extensive (10,000) map collection. Researchers will soon be able to access most of this online. The G.W. Blunt White Library also  has many rare  books. I recommend the article.
     
    For me of  particular note, one chart was owned by Captain Joseph Warren Holmes of Mystic, CT .  He holds the record of sailing around Cape Horn 84 times......wow! The article states this chart shows multiple tracks all converging at the southern tip of South America.
     
    With recent funding, more and more of this info will be easily  available for study and research.  Regards to all.

    Bruce
