I came across a chart book ( 2 vols) of the Dodecanese produced by a retired Greek merchant navy mariner,

best charts I have ever seen, but have lost the name and reference, so I can buy it.

Written in both Greek and English.

Looks like this ...

Can anyone help ?

The chart looks like it came from the Greek edition of N. D. Elias's Chart Book/cruising guide published by Eagle Ray. It has an excellent reputation but it is pricey. It comes in 4 volumes (covers Greek waters) at 100 €/volume. On the other hand, yearly updates are free.

I do not own any of the volumes but to many of my Greek cruiser friends is their "bible". The charts are complete. If you plan to cruise in Greece and do not have a large collection of paper charts, it is a good investment. The guide part, is correct but uses a minimalist approach.
