Copper engraving, hand coloured, mm 350x476. Printed on early XIX century paper. Nice example of Cassini's map of America, showing the tracks of Captain James Cook through the South Pacific, Hawaii, New Zealand and the Northwest Coast of America during his three voyages between 1668 to 1778. From Cassini's Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale. A note bottom left describes Cook's discovery of the passage between the islands of New Zealand. An unusual feature of the map is a massive lake "Moozemlek," a name which began appearing on maps nearly 100 years earlier. The location of the Pais de Moozemlek would endure in the region for more than 100 years.
