Captain James Cook


Captain James Cook created some amazingly accurate charts during the era of European exploration of the Pacific. His maps of New Zealand are infamous for their minor errors but their quality is demonstrated by the fact Cook's charts of the Marlborough Sounds for example were still in use in the mid-twentieth century. NZ Fine Prints stock superb re-prints of the different versions of these historical maps that capture as closely as possible the look and feel of the antique Cook maps of New Zealand using authentic style paper and lightfast inks.
