This map portrays the strategically significant Falkland Islands region during the contentious period of British, Spanish, and French territorial disputes in the 18th century. Commodore John Byron claimed the islands for Britain in 1765, amidst ongoing rivalries.

Featuring inset maps of Isle de George and Terre de Sandwich, showcasing Captain James Cook's 1775 discoveries, the map meticulously delineates voyages and provides depth soundings. Created by Rigobert Bonne, it exemplifies the evolving style of cartography in the early to mid-18th century, characterized by a shift towards simpler and more pragmatic map designs. Notable for its minimal embellishments, such as a compass rose and a fleur-de-lys indicating north, the map reflects this era's emphasis on practicality over ornateness.

Condition: This map is in B+ condition with some faint offsetting and light foxing in the margins.
