Published by Carey & Hart, this chart details the entire ocean to include Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand, Japan and Kamtschatka to Alaska and down the coastlines of North and South America. Australia is divided into only three states: West Australia, South Australia and New South Wales. No information on Antarctica noted, but the small inset "Wilke's Discoveries on the Reduced Scale" shows a portion of the Antarctic Continent and locates Volcanic Rocks. The map is stunning with its crisp impression and incredibly well applied color.
