Description :A detailed chart after Cook?s charting of Mercury Bay and the Hauraki Bay at Auckland, New Zealand with soundings anchorages and other navigational data, with two insets of ?Pte. Pocock?, just north of Whangarei, and ?Baye de Tolaga?, north of Gisborne. Historically important as the chart was published just 4 years after this pioneering data was recorded.
Capt. James Cook's first voyage to the Pacific and New Zealand lasted 3 years from 1768-1771 & in the Fall of 1769 Cook's ship the ?Endeavour? sailed along the east coast of New Zealand's North Island, and anchored briefly in an inlet that Cook named Tolaga Bay where he stocked up on wood and water. Continuing along the coast to where it turned westward, Cook found a large bay whose shores were lined with lush cultivated areas, and which he named Bay of Plenty. Anchoring on the west side of the Bay, Cook and an astronomer, Charles Green, who had accompanied the expedition, went ashore to observe the transit of Mercury across the Sun, and Cook named the region Mercury Bay. From there, the ?Endeavour? continued it's north-westerly course along the coast until a river was sighted & Cook went ashore in what is now Hauraki Gulf. The river reminded him so forcibly of the Thames in London, that he named it the Thames River or River Tamise. This finely detailed chart is based on surveys brought back to England at the end of the Voyage & includes depth-soundings, anchorages & tracks of the ?Endeavour? during the course of the surveys. The chart shows the River Thames, Mercury Bay, Tolaga Bay and the Bay of Islands. The latter is located on the northern tip of New Zealand's North Island and was visited & named by Cook in December of 1769
