Description

Rare separately issued map of America, published in Venice by C.F. Delamarche.

Delamarche is best known as having continued the business of the De Vaugondy family. This map, with its Venice imprint, is very unusual.

The map notes that it includes updated information from the expeditions of James Cook and James Meares, curiously not mentioning any of the active French Explorers who circumnavigated at the end of the 18th Century and extensively explored the Pacific Ocean.

The style and engraving quality of hte map is quite distinctive. The map identifies a number of Hawaiian islands, an unusual feature for a world map of this period.
