337: (greenville, Captain) Great Britain's Coasting Pil
***Greenville Collins was one of the most important English cartographers though little is known of the man himself. He was made a commander in 1679 and "Hydrographer to the King" by Charles II. In 1681 Charles II appointed Collins to "survey the seacoast of the kingdom by measuring all the sea coasts with a chain and taking all the bearings of the headlands". It took him from 1681-1688 to do this survey and he produced 120 manuscript draughts. In 1693 the charts were published in atlas form..
