Description :A chart of the end of Long Island and the area around Gardinerís Bay. Including Gardners Island, and Block Island. Gardinerís Island was used as a base by the British Admiral Arbuthnot.
Gardinerís Bay was a strategic location for the British fleet during the Revolutionary War because it enabled them to close off the eastern end of the Sound and contest the French and Americans for control of Block Island Sound and Narragansett Bay.

Taken from the "Atlantic Neptune", and marked in lower right corner "Published according to Act of Parliament Jan. 1st 1779 by J.F.W. Des Barres Esq".
This superb sea chart constructed for the use of the British Navy shows Les őles-de-la-Madeleine.
The Atlantic Neptune is universally recognised as one of the most magnificent atlases ever made.
Examples were frequently carried on board the British war ships operating in American waters during the Revolution.
