German WW2 U-boat tidal atlas for West British waters

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 shallow waters to the West of Britain operating against coastal shipping or following the final stages of 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 been on U-boats lost in action during the war.

In very good condition in original grey boards, cloth spine, firm binding, the charts clean and unmarked.

The Nazi symbol in the Kriegsmarine eagle stamp on the front cover and title page has been inked-over by a former post-war owner.

Item reference RS-2054.
