Rare Late Edition Showing Matthew Flinder's Discoveries in Australia

Detailed double hemisphere map of the World, showing tracks of some of the contemporary explorers, including James Cook and George Anson.

The map shows the "Corean Sea," along with Tasmania detached from Australia, based on the recent discoveries by Flinders.

Hawaii is located, as are the discoveries along the northwest coast of America by Vancouver, whose name does not yet appear on Vancouver Island. Cartographically, the map would also seem to pre-date the Louisiana Purchase and the newly Indepdendent nations of South America.

This is one of the latest editions of this map we have encountered and the only edition to show the Flinders discoveries.
