Title : La Nuova Zelanda tracorsa nel 1769 e 1770 dal Cook commandante dell' Endeavour Vascello di S.M.Britannica..
Map maker : ZATTA, A..
Date : Venise, 1778.
Size : 17.5 x 14.1 inches. / 44.5 x 35.9 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :Antonio Zatta’s map of New Zealand is not only one of the first to show the results of Cook’s voyages, but is also one of the most attractive of the islands. Considerable coastal detail, with reference to the Endeavour’s path, and a little and surmised internal detail.
The map delineates two islands, tentatively identifying the Southern Island separate. The map shows Cook's tracks around the island, along with the astronomical observations. Nice topographical detail is shown, along with a blend of native and European place names on the islands. The map includes several annotations. The decorative cartouche, in full original colour, shows a native village scene.

New Zealand, though discovered by Tasman in 1642, received no further European exploration until the first Pacific voyage of James Cook. Cook sailed the coast of New Zealand for 6 months, proving that it was not part of the Great Southern Continent, as many had believed. Cook visited New Zealand several times, with Zatta's map drawn from information provided in the latest of his voyages.. ¤
Condition : A few worm traces filled in. Small part in lower part center fold re-inforced and scale re-drawn.
