Originally printed in 1796 (Adams), Edmund Blunt’s ‘American Coast Pilot’ was one of the earliest American works of navigation and travel. Blunt authored other nautical works which held great esteem and merit, and, according to Allibone,

“this work sustains a high reputation for accuracy, and is in general use by American merchant-marine. It has been translated into most of the languages of Europe.”

 This guide was extremely important to North American voyages, and shows views of harbors as they existed prior to the Civil War. Views of Charleston, Long Island, Virgin Islands, Pensacola, and others. It includes bearings for lighthouses along the Eastern coastline, and warned against rocks, shoals, and dangerous ledges. It also charts sea currents, tides, and locations for them. This work would see twenty-one editions through 1867, before being taken over by the US Government.
