    This large, two-sheet map of the world is presented on Mercator's Projection. It marks the routes taken by Captain Cook on his three expeditions, centered on the Pacific Ocean, where Cook's most important discoveries were made. The map is based on the important map by Lieutenant Henry Roberts, who compiled the surveys for the official account of the voyage. The tracks detail the voyages, each distinguished by a different color, with dates of important discoveries noted. Two sheets, unjoined, as issued; dimensions are for each sheet.

Condition Description: A dark impression on a heavy sheet of watermarked paper. A pristine example. The bluish hue in the image along the centerfold was created by our scanner and is not on the physical map.
