La Nuova Zelanda tracorsa nel 1769 e 1770 dal Cook commandante dell' Endeavour Vascello di S.M. Britannica.

Venice: Zatta, 1778. The first published map of the whole of New Zealand, based on discoveries made on Cook's first voyage, but published shortly before his official accounts were. Cook's tracks are marked, as well as his soundings and astronomical observations. A fair amount of topographical detail is noted. Both the North and South Island are charted in detail, as Cook sailed off their coast for 6 months, proving that New Zealand was not part of the Great Southern Continent. Copper engraving with later hand color, 17 3/8 x 13 7/8 ". A crisp impression with no foxing and ample margins, but with an added margin on right border. Engraved by Zuliani after Pasuali. Tooley: Australia 1433. Item #13331

Price: $2,500.00
