This elegant hand colored map by Giovanni Maria Cassini appeared following the discoveries of Captain Cook in the late 18th century. The portions of Cook’s voyages which took place in the northern hemisphere are denoted on the map, including the dates of the voyages at various stages. The perspective is from directly above the North Pole, and includes all of Asia plus Borneo and Sumatra, more than half of Africa, all of North America and a portion of South America.

The land masses included are depicted in fine detail, with names of countries and some major cities noted. In addition, some regions of interest such as Laponia (Lapland) are also named. Tablets embellished with decorative images on either side of the map provide detailed descriptions of the length of days in various zones, and the climate at positions noted on the map. 

Condition: This map is in A condition. Beautiful hand coloring with even toning.
