Description

Scarce two sheet map of the World, showing the tracts of Cooks three voyages, each of which is color coded. Includes dates of significant observations from Cook's journals. Excellent detail in the Pacific, Oceana, Southeast Asia and along the NW Coast of America. Includes annotations. The mapmaker avoids showing a definitive NW Passage, one of the few maps to show such restraint. Schraembl's world map is quite scarce, with only one other example offered in a dealer catalogue in the past 20 years. A nice unjoined example, each sheet with a single fold where bound into an immense atlas.
