|Didier Robert de Vaugondy.|
Mappemonde dressée suivant les nouvelles relations et assujettie aux observations astronomiques.
Paris, Fortin, 1778. 480 x 750mm. Coloured. Double hemisphere world map with a fine rococo cartouche filling the cusps. On the map only the route of Captain Cook's First Voyage, with New Zealand and Australia, have been added; he had yet to make his Third, fatal, voyage, so the Bering Straits still show the spurious discoveries of de Fonte. In the lower left hemisphere the outline of Europe has been added over the Antipodes for comparison
