Essay d'une Carte Réduite Contenant Les Parties Connuees de Globe Terrestre.
Paris, c.1775. 510 x 700mm. Coloured. Binding folds flattened. A large chart of the world which, although it is dated 1748, has been updated to show the discoveries of Captain Cook around Australia and New Zealand in 1769-70. However Cook's discoveries through the Bering Straits on his Third and final voyage (1778-9) are not included. Rhumb lines, two compass roses and an ornate cartouche make this a very decorative map.
