This handsome map shows Capt. Cook's discoveries in Prince William Sound and Cook Inlet and includes the track and anchor points of the Resolution. The map is inset with Plan du Havre de Samganoodha, dans l'Isle de Oonalaska. A large compass rose dominates the center. Drawn by Bonne and engraved by Andre.
A nice impression on watermarked paper with very faint offsetting and a few printer's creases.
