Description

First edition of this finely executed map of the coastlines of Northwestern America and Northeastern Asia, from the first edition of La Perouse's Atlas du Voyage.

The map shows the tracks of the Boussolle and the Astrolabe along the coast of California, through to Mount St. Elias through Hawaii and along the coast of China, Korea, Japan and Kamchatka. Many place names along the West Coast.

La Perouse's voyage was one of the major voyages of discovery in the Pacific in the last part of the 18th Century.
