This fascinating map of the world is filled with Captain Cook’s routes from all three voyages. A key at bottom right corresponds to the various tracks of each voyage. In North America, there is a fictitious River of the West, while Alaska is shown with a fairly correct shape. A note on the northwest coast of the continent mentions Fou-sang, a mythical Chinese colony allegedly established in the 5th century.
The Sandwich Islands are shown and noted as the place where Capt. Cook was killed. The South Pacific is filled with islands, and New Zealand is fully formed. Tasmania is still attached to Australia, which is shown with an incomplete southern coastline. There are numerous detailed notations throughout.
