Fine example of this German edition of Cook's explorations along the northwest coast of America and northeast coast of Asia, based upon the original work by Lieutenant Henry Roberts.

Excellent detail in the Behring Straits, including extensive notes on soundings. Cook's tracks are shown with dates and notes of other explorers, including Bodega and Mackenzie's tracks in Canada and the Arctic Circle. Information derived from Hearn and others exploring the Northwest Passage and western Hudson Bay, by land and sea, are also included.
