Vintage Map

Approx image size in millimetres: 360 x 480 

This map is a clearance sale item. This map went all the way to France and back when a customer didn't pay their customs duties, and it has some very minor dents on the edges from when it was inspected at the French border. One only.

 This print is of one of Captain Cook’s charts from his voyage of discovery to the Pacific on the bark Endeavour. The chart was first published in 1772 in the official account of Cook’s voyage. It is a remarkable tribute to Cook’s navigation and charting skills, the only major inaccuracies being Stewart Island shown as a peninsula and Bank’s Peninsula as an island.

This print is published by Thorndon Fine Prints. It is an exact replica of an original extremely rare handcoloured map made from Captain Cook’s chart of NZ, originally published in Rome in 1798, as plate 35 in volume 3 of Giovanni Maria Cassini’s atlas Nuovo Atlante Geographico Universale
