Description

Finely colored two sheet map of the World, showing the tracts of Captain James Cook's three voyages, published in Vienna by Franz Schraembl, the leading mapmaker in Austria at the end of the 18th Century.

Includes dates of significant observations from Cook's journals. Excellent detail in the Pacific, Oceana, southeast Asia and along the northwest coast of America. The map is also among the earliest world maps to locate Hawaii, then known as the Sandwich Islands.

The map avoids showing a definitive Northwest Passage, one of the few maps to show such restraint.
