¤ Chart shows the Falkland Islands and the Falkland Straits discovered by Sir Richard Hawkins in 1574. Shows many harbors, channels, capes, bays, shoals, islands, rocks, soundings and ships tracks circumnavigating the islands.

This print is taken from the first French edition of James Cook's first voyage entitled Relation des voyages entrepris par ordre de sa Majesté Britannique actuellement régnante pour faire des découvertes dans l'hémisphère méridional, et successivement exécutés par le commodore Byron, le capitaine Carteret, le capitaine Wallis et le capitaine Cook dans les vaisseaux "le Dauphin ", "le Swallow" and "l'Endeavour".
Translated by Suard and published in Paris by Saillant et Nyon - Pancoucke in 4 volumes with numerous illustrations, charts, and maps.
An Account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty for making discoveries in the southern hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour , the first official three-volume account of James Cook's first voyage, was edited by John Hawkesworth in English in London in 1773. The first volume contains accounts of the voyages of Byron, Wallis, and Carteret. The second and third volumes are entirely concerned with Cook's voyage, based upon material drawn from journals kept by Cook and the papers of Joseph Banks. Hawkesworth composed his account in the first person of Cook and incorporated Banks's descriptions and observations as well as his own commentary, without ever distinguishing the different sources. In addition to the written account of the voyage, the two volumes related to Cook's voyage include 31 illustrations, charts and maps.

Captain James Cook, explorer, cartographer and hydrographer went to command several notable voyages, the first was from 1768-1771. He was led to his commission by the direction of British overseas exploration in 1766 as commander of HM Bark Endeavour for the first of three Pacific voyages. Cook later mapped the complete New Zealand coastline, making only some minor errors. He then sailed west, reaching the south-eastern coast of the Australian continent on 19 April 1770, and in doing so his expedition became the first recorded Europeans to have encountered its eastern coastline.
Cook's journals were published upon his return, and he became something of a hero among the scientific community. Cook's 12 years sailing around the Pacific Ocean contributed much to European knowledge of the area.

¤ Rare chart of the Atlantic Ocean, from the first edition of Hendrick Doncker's Zee-Atlas, of which no surviving example is known. Although the idea of it's unusual coverage is derived from the Theunis Jacobsz chart of 1650, Doncker here introduces independent cartography.
Most obvious is the difference in depiction of the rivers, for example the Amazon. The coast of Newfoundland and the New Netherlands also differ. "Gebroken lant" is introduced to name Long Island.
No mention is made of the English presence in New England, the entire territory being named "Nieu Nederlant". In 1672 he introduced another similar plate, and later made use of a revised Colom plate. - Burden, America 338, state 1.

¤ English manuscript map on paper of a bay on Fernando de Noronha. Many names in English, to the lower left This draft is extremely Erroneous.
Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, midway from South America to Africa, around 220 miles (354 km) away from the Brazilian coast. It is a special municipality (distrito estatal) of the Brazilian state of Pernambuco.
The first to actually describe the island was Amerigo Vespucci, who traveled with a Portuguese expedition to Brazil in the year 1503. In 1534, the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago was invaded by the English, and from 1556 until 1612, it was held by the French. In 1628, it was invaded by the Dutch, who were displaced two years later by a Spanish-Portuguese military expedition led by Rui Calaza Borges. The Dutch occupied the island once again in 1635, making it a hospital for its troops which occupied Northeastern Brazil. The island became known as Pavonia, in honor of Michiel de Pauw, one of the directors of the Dutch West Indies Company ( W.I.C. ). It would remain under Dutch control for nearly twenty years, when it was reconquered by Portugal. ¤
A rare example of a manuscript sea chart, probably from the Thames School, with intriguing early annotations, perhaps used in the offices of the British Navy.
