This small map extends from the Bay of Bengal southeast to Australia and New Zealand. It reflects the discoveries of Captain Cook with a completed eastern coastline for Australia and complete borders for New Zealand. The map features an inset of Botany Bay where Captain Cook first landed in 1770. The southern coastline of Australia is still speculative, however, and Tasmania shown as part of the mainland. A small notation near Hawaii indicates that Cook was killed there.
