First Issue of Vrient's Miniature World Map
Jan Baptista Vrients.

Antwerp, Vrients, 1601. When Vrients published his first edition of Ortelius's Epitome he introduced this new double-hemisphere map, alongside the original oval map engraved by Galle. It is untitled, although there is 'Globus Terrestris' in letterpress above the map. Under the spheres is a rustic scene, with a church in the centre.

World Map with the discoveries of Cook
Jacques Nicolas Bellin.

Paris, c.1775. 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.

Double hemisphere World map
Didier Robert de Vaugondy.

Paris, Fortin, 1778. 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
