This very detailed map covers Oceania from the east coast of Australia to California. Scores of islands, among them the Society, Friendly, New Hebrides, Caroline, and Sandwich archipelagos are located, including hundreds of tiny islands and shoals. A delicately engraved border surrounds the area and the four vignettes: "Kalakakooa, Sandwich Islands", "Otaheite", "Harbour of Dory, New Guinea", and "Resolution Bay, Marguesas." The Baja Peninsula is called Old California here.
Condition Description: Original outline color with short centerfold separations at top and bottom that have been archivally repaired, minor soiling, and faint toning along the centerfold.
