Description

A marvelous map of the Pacific, detailing the explorations of Cook and Meares. The map shows the regions from Central Asia to Baja California, but the primary focus is on the tracks of the various explorers through the Northwest, Alaska, Canada, Hawaii and on to Western Pacific and Southeast Asia. Wagner notes that the map is evidently based on Portlock's work as well. Wagner 759. Meares' maps are far scarcer than Cook's maps, this French edition having never been catalogued in Jolly. Includes extensive annotations throughout the map, including datelines on the tracks of Meares and Cook.
