An uncommon sailing directory for the West Indies. Though issued for use with the chart mentioned in the title, most such directories were sold separately from the charts to which they relate, and in many instances both directories and charts are hard to find. This volume previously formed part of the holdings of the Danish Marinens Bibliotek, the centre for Naval and maritime research in Copenhagen.
