Description

Interesting map of America and parts of Europe and Asia, based upon the mythical voyage of Captain Cluny.

Captain Cluny was a mythical Sea Captain, who was thought to have sailed to 82.5 Degrees North Latitude in 1769, information passed on by "an American Traveler," shortly before Cluny death in 1770.

Diderot's maps were intended to further an understanding of the Western Coast of America, and NE Asia, during a time period immediately prior to Cook's first voyage where numerous theories abounded on these regions, especially the NW Coast of America.
