Fine example of HS Tanner's map of the World, published in his American Atlas. An inset gives instructions on how to calculate the distance between two locations using the map.
The map includes the tracks of exploration for the three Voyages of Captain James Cook, and the voyages of George Vancouver, and La Perouse in their circumnavigations of the world.
In the Atlantic, the routes of Captain Phipps in 1773 and Lieutenant Pickersgill in 1776 are shown, both traveling north towards the Arctic waters.
