Copper-engraved map, hand-colored. 28.5x46.3 cm (11�x18�").

The South Pacific is filled with islands and New Zealand is fully formed. Tasmania is still attached to Australia, which is shown with an unexplored southern coastline. There are numerous notations throughout, and the tracks of Anson and Cook. An inset of the North Pole is tucked between the hemispheres at bottom.
