Description

Interesting map of the World, published in London in 1799.

The map shows the various discoveries of Captain James Cook during his 3 voyages between 1768 and 1780, and the English and French Explorers who followed immediately thereafter, including Vancouver and La Perouse.

This edition of the map is significantly revised from the editions issued immediately af the the official report of Cook's Voyages were integrated into the map, showing better detail in New Zealand, Australia, the Northwest Coast of America and North East coast of Asia, along with Greenland. A new large lake also appears for the first time in the Western part of North America, shortly before the commencement of the Lewis & Clark expedition.
