Dezauche, the successor to the Delisle cartographic firm, issued this impressive large double-hemisphere map based upon the work of both Delisle and Bauche. The map shows well formed continents with the latest discoveries. The western portion of North America has taken shape and Alaska (Amerique Russe) is shown based on the discoveries of Captain Cook. Australia and New Zealand also reflect the discoveries of Captain Cook, whose routes are traced throughout the map, including several landfalls in Antarctica.
