Karten der Harmonischen Gezeitenkonstanten fur das Gebiet der Westbritischen Gewasser
Oberkommando der Kriegsmarine: 1942.
16.5 x 12 inches, 42 x 31 cms. Title-page, forward, 20 full-page tidal charts of the West Coast of Britain and Ireland.
These "Harmonic Constant" tidal charts were issued by the German Kriegsmarine to all German U-boats operating in the dangerous waters to the West of Britain following the convoy routes into Liverpoool.
This is a museum quality individually numbered example (Pruf-nr. 0540) - research could perhaps established for which U-boat it was issued.
The charts are rarely found today, many having gone down with their U-boat.
In very good condition in original grey boards, cloth spine, firm binding, the charts clean and unmarked.
Following post-war German legisation, the Nazi symbol in the Kriegsmarine eagle stamp in this original WW2 atlas was later inked-out on the front cover and title page.
