Attractive Italian map presented on Mercator's projection and featuring the voyages of Cook and Bougainville. Greenland is shown connected to North America and Alaska is considerably oversized. Australia is connected to Terra di van Diemen and New Zealand appears as two islands, but in an unusual stout configuration. The map is decorated with a garland-style title cartouche and a nice compass rose.

Original pastel coloring. Faint scattered foxing, else very good.
