The official name of the map is French – “Nuove scoperte fatte nel 1765, 67, e 69 nel Mare del Sud” (1776)
It is one of the first decorative map to show Cook’s tracks in the Pacific, recording the discoveries he made in Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, and the South Pacific during the Endeavour voyage. Also noted are the tracks of Philip Carteret, John Byron, and Samuel Wallis. The chartings of the east coast of Australia and New Zealand’s two islands are shown in detail, drawn from Cook’s own map of the region, “Chart of Part of the South Seas” (1773). The ship depicted is most probably the Endeavour.
As with all of our prints we have removed the old tattered background and enhanced the colours of the image to make it appear brand new.
