Description

Interesting double hemisphere map of the world from an unknown German source, which provides an excellent contemporary understanding of the world in the later part of the 18th Century.

Neu Holand (Australia) no longer attaches itself to New Guinea, but Van Dieman's Land is still attached to the mainland. Neu Seeland reflects Cook's discoveries, including Cook's Strait.

The Northwest Coast of America is updated to reflect the recently rejected myth of the Sea of the West, but lacks the details provided by Vancouver and is still reliant upon the Russian Discoveries in the 1740s, with an open ended Northwest Passage. Western Canada is called Tschirikow's Land.

A curious Sandwich Land appears south of South America. A note of Cook's Southern Voyages in 1774 is shown.
