This highly detailed map identifies all the islands in the Pacific Ocean, extending to include the Aleutian Islands in the north and just past New Zealand in the south. Australia and the coasts of China and North and South America are shown. A few notations are included, such as "Captn. Cook killed 1779," which appears next to Hawaii near the center of the map.
