Homann Heirs 555 x 470 mmD1 / M404 / I377Damaged, repaired tears, cross folds, some loss.

A map of the world showing Cook's second and third voyages. Australia is shown fairly crudely due to the maps purpose of showing the six regions or continents in the world. North America, South America, Asia, Europe, Africa and Australia. At this time Antarctica was still thought to be purely an ice island and so did not receive the recognition as a continent. A colourful and interesting map.
