The China Sea Directory, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from The China Sea Directory, Vol. 1: Containing Directions for the Approaches to the China Sea, by Malacca, Singapore, Sunda, Banka, Gaspar, Carimata, Rhio, Varella, and Durian Straits The China Sea Directory, Vol. I., contains Sailing Directions for the approaches to the China Sea by Malacca, Singapore, Sunda, Banka, Caspar, Carimata, Rhio, Varella, and Durian Straits- also general observations on the passages from the Cape of Good Hope to Sunda Strait and Singapore. The material used has been gathered from the following sources: Malacca strait from the surveys of Lieutenants Ward and Jackson, Indian Navy, 1852-60. Portions of it, viz., the Lankawa islands, Penang and its approaches, Diuding island and channel, Perak river entrance and its approaches, and Larut river, have been re-surveyed by Captain Napier, Commander the Honourable F. Vereker, and Lieutenant H. Belam, in H. M. surveying vessels, 1876-84- also the south shore between Aroa islands and the Carimon islands has been partially re-surveyed by the Dutch. Singapore, Banka, and Rhio straits are from the surveys of Messrs. Richards, Stanton, and Reed, Masters R, N., 1860-68, and Mr. Thompson, Government Surveyor, 1843-49- portions of Banka and Rhio strait have been re-surveyed by the Dutch Government. Durian strait is from the surveys of Lieutenants Collinson and Moresby, Indian Navy, 1822- Lieutenant Tjassens, Dutch Navy, 1843, with additions by Mr. Stanton, 1862. Sunda strait to Banka strait is from various authorities. H. M. surveying vessels in 1865-6 searched in vain for many reported dangers and rectified the positions of others- similar work is being carried on by the Dutch surveyors- yet, as no complete survey has been made, vessels should navigate it with caution. Gaspar and Carimata straits are principally from the re-surveys made by the Dutch from 1880-5- the southern approaches to Carimata were partially examined by H. M.'s surveying vessels Sylvia and Nassau, 1874-6, and the Carimata islands, with some of the Montaren group, were surveyed by Lieutenant H. Hoskyn, H. M. S. Flying Fish in 1880. The positions of some of the outlying reefs, however, have yet to be investigated. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
