      A chart of Aboukir Bay by Thomas Atkinson, the master in the THESEUS at the time of the battle in 1798, was published subsequently by Laurie and Whittle, and later approved for purchase and issue to the Fleet by the Admiralty Chart Committee.

      I have been unable to locate a copy of this chart. Can any member point me to an archive holding a copy?

        Mike, you might try the Admiralty Library at Portsmouth, Jennie Wraight Librarian (email: cnsnhbal@a.dii.mod.uk), or the Archivist at the UK Hydrographic Office at Taunton (email: Phillip.Clayton-Gore@ukho.gov.uk), either of whom will almost certainly have what you need.

          Justin, Thank you. Neither UKHO nor NHB [Naval Historical Branch – to which the Admiralty Library reports, Ed] have a copy. Nor does the British Library. I will keep searching, and post any result.
