Handsome large-scale map of the coastlines of the North Pacific based on the map by Capt. Cook's cartographer, Lieutenant Henry Roberts. It covers the western coast of Alaska and the east coast of Asia including Kamtschaka and illustrates Cook's explorations in 1778 and 1779. Excellent detail in the Bering Straits, including extensive notes on soundings. Notes concerning other explorations in the region are also included both along the coasts and inland. The Schraembl edition of Cook's map is one of the scarcest editions.
Couple of unobtrusive spots, overall very good.
