Description

Striking double hemisphere map of the world, with extensive tracts of European voyages in the Pacific and elsewhere. Included are the notes of the voyages of Tasman, Le Maire, Vancouver, Cook, MacKenzie, St. Louis, Vaisseaux, Anson, Cabadonga and others. While many of the major discoveries in the Pacific are now shown, including a relatively accurate New Zealand, Australia and NW Coast of America, the details in these regions are far from accurately refined. A curious coastal outline is shown in the Antarctic and South Pacific, foretelling more discoveries in the Antipodes. One of the most decorative early 19th Century French World Maps, based upon earlier maps by De Vaugondy, with substantial corrections.
