Plan for the Citadel at Hull by Bernard De Gomme( )

2 editions published in 1681 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two nearly identical manuscript plans for the Citadel at Hull. The first is dated October 18, 1681; the second, February 26, 1681/2. The plans depict a triangular fort at the confluence of the Hull and Humber rivers, on the east bank of the Hull. Insets in the upper right corner of each provide a small drawing of an unidentified church -- presumably St. Peter's Church, in Drypool. Both plans are signed "CR" i.e., King Charles II. Despite the signature of Charles II, the plans are likely the work of Sir Martin Beckman
The Castell Perrott placed uppon the rocke cauled the stacke( )

1 edition published in 1600 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Manuscript plan depicting a triangular fort built around a "stack" (a small offshore island). A dozen cannons are depicted. At each corner of the fort is a flag bearing the Cross of Saint George. The location of the fort is unclear. The castle is probably named after Sir John Perrott (1528-1592), who served as lord deputy of Ireland to Queen Elizabeth. Perrott's son, Sir Thomas Perrott, married Dorothy Devereux, sister of Robert Devereux, who from 1597 to 1601 served as Master-General of the Ordnance to Queen Elizabeth

Plans for fortification and harbor works at Dunkirk by Bernard De Gomme( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Andrew Saunders credits all seven drawings to Bernard de Gomme, who in 1661 was appointed engineer in charge of all the king's castles and fortifications in England and Wales. "Three [drawings] are plans of defences to the north and west of the town at the harbour mouth. Another contains profiles through these works ... The other three concern details of the constructions: a profile of the timber foundation for a stone wall towards the sea; a cross-section of a batardeau and an indeterminate timber work which suggests a dock or sluice-like structure. The three plans of the defences relate to the same area of fortification among the sand dunes."--Saunders, page 85

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The present plans are in four groups: [1] four general plans showing the entirety of Hull fortifications on both sides of the River Hull, progressing from a relatively simple first design to a fourth in which the area of the works is about doubled; [2] five plans of the portion of fortification lying east of the River Hull (called by Beckman "The Cittadel"), one of which is unsigned; [3] two plans of the south block house, at the southern point of this citadel; [4] two drawings of an unidentified bastion, unsigned
Nautical chart of Grand Havre, Guernsey by Thomas Phillips( )

1 edition published in 1680 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Manuscript nautical chart giving the compass bearings and soundings of Grand Havre, Guernsey. The chart was evidently made quickly, from a survey on the spot. It includes hasty depictions of the Vale Church and a windmill beyond it, as well as a ship sailing into the harbor. The chart was probably drawn by the military engineer Thomas Phillips (d. 1693), who in 1679-1680 was sent to the Channel Islands to make maps and plans of the bays (see Oxford Dictionary of National Biography)
Plan of Scarbrogh Castle & towne by James Archer( )

1 edition published in 1680 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Manuscript plan of the town of Scarborough, Yorkshire, and the coasts in its vicinity. In the inset at lower left are alphabetical and numerical keys (A-Z; 2-11), and a "Description of the South and North Bay." Towards the center are the scale and an inset showing the "Profil of Scarbrogh Castle." The plan includes depictions of streets, piers, and some individual buildings of the town and castle. Areas of land are covered by a 200-foot grid indexed numerically (in graphite) N-S and E-W
Plan of a fortification in Guernsey( )

1 edition published in 1682 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Manuscript plan of a small fort for a harbor in Guernsey. The foot of the plan is captioned, in a contemporary hand: "This designe was made for the rock on the westernmost parte of the harbor intended at Guernsye, July 20th, 1682." The harbor may be that of St. Peter's Port, the principal town of the island. The plan is unsigned, but is likely the work of Sir Martin Beckman or Captain Thomas Phillips. The latter was sent to the Channel Islands in 1679-1680 to make maps and plans of the harbors and fortifications
Description of Jarsey( )

1 edition published in 1600 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Manuscript map of the island of Jersey, drawn in 1600. The author is unknown, although the map appears to be connected to the circle of the royal Surveyor of Works, Robert Adams (d. 1595). The map specifies the location of fortifications, houses, churches, windmills, and other man-made features. The rocks around the island are represented by small triangles, and dotted lines in the bays show low water marks. The entire map is covered with a penciled grid, which appears to have been added at a later date. Such grids were often used to make an enlarged or reduced copy. In this case, it may have enabled a quick reckoning of areas and distances. The grid size matches the one-mile opening of the scale compasses at the upper right
