Map of the South Pacific, showing the sailing routes to the South Pacific by Carteret and Byron, but most importantly the discoveries made by Captain Cook, 1768-1771. These include the first circumnavigation of New Zealand and the mapping of the eastern coast of Australia.

Originally published in Zatta's general atlas in 1776, this edition is from volume V of “Raccolta di tutti i viaggi fatti intorno al mondo da diverse nazioni dell’Europa” by Jean Pierre Berenger published in 1794-96 illustrated with maps by the venetian editor Zatta.
Compared with the map in “Atlante novissimo”, title and date have changed.

The coastline of southern Australia is only shown with dotted lines as it was not yet surveyed.
Zatta's map charts the track of the Endeavour through the Society Islands and on to Australia 's east coast, as well as charting the tracks of other navigators in the South Pacific region. Interestingly enough Cook's track is shown to pass in between Banks Island and the South Island of New Zealand when in fact no island exists, only a peninsula. The vessel illustrated in the map's delightful vignette is in all probability the Endeavour.

Originally published in Zatta's general atlas in 1776, this example comes from volume V of “Raccolta di tutti i viaggi fatti intorno al mondo da diverse nazioni dell’Europa” by Jean Pierre Berenger published in 1794-1796 illustrated with maps by the Venetian editor Zatta.
Compared with the maps in “Atlante novissimo”, the title and date have been changed. The explanatory panel "La Nuova Galles. . ." in the lower left corner has also been deleted.

Engraved by G.V.Pasquali.
Reference: MCC 12: One Hundred Foreign Maps of Australia, 2, plate II. Tooley, 1432.
