Title : Carte de l'Océan Pacifique au Nord de l'Equateur... / Charte des Stillen Weltmeers. . ..
Map maker : LOTTER, T.C..
Date : Augsburg, 1781.
Size : 18.5 x 20.1 inches. / 47.0 x 51.0 cm.
Colouring : In attractive strong original colours.
Description :The earliest folio-sized printed map of Cook's third voyage, on which he became the first European to discover Hawaii. On this voyage, he also explored the Northwest coast of America and Alaska.
The title in French and German notes that the map is based on the latest discoveries made by Spanish, Russian and British explorers up to 1780. In the panel of text at the foot, Mann states that he copied a map in the Gentlemen's Magazine, for December 1780. No such map has been found in the Gentleman's Magazine, but a map by Thomas Kitchin in the London Magazine , for December 1780, fits Mann's description.
A note in the map refers to the Bering Strait being impassable due to ice, drawing the conclusion that a north-west Passage did not exist.
Condition : In original wash colour. In mint condition. Wide margins.
