This pair of maps is from the last all-sail naval mission to completely encircle the globe. The first map shows the track of the expedition. The second is a nice thematic map showing the whaling grounds throughout the world.
Both maps are clean and bright. They have been professionally encapsulated in Mylar sleeves.
