Detailed map of the World, showing tracks of Captain James Cook in his 3 voyages in great detail. The map is extensively annotated with information on the explorations of a number of regions on the map in the 1770s, primarily deriving from Cook. New Zealand is shown. Australia retains it's a mostly conjectural mid-18th Century Coastline. No sign of Antarctica. Fascinating transitional mapping of Alaska and NW America. Small hole below the eastern hemisphere, else a nice example of the map, one of the first World maps printed in America.
