Description:

Rare Danish edition of this fine early map covering the Pacific Ocean region including Australia and New Zealand.

Australia is attached to New Guinea and Tasmania attached to the mainland. The east coast is entirely imaginary. New Zealand includes only its western coast in an incomplete fashion.

This map is remarkable in its historical significance, timed only a few years before the commencement of an intense campaign by the English and French to explore and map Oceana and the South Pacific.

Extends from the Marianas and Carolines to the Coast of America, including Baja California, the Gulf of Mexico, Central America and much of South America, including the Straits of Magellan and Cape Horn.
