The first edition of the chart produced by James Cook and engraved by William Whitchurch for the official account of the Cook’s first voyage published by John Hawksworth in 1773. Cook’s route across the South Pacific from Cape Horn to New Zealand and Australia is marked. The chart was the inspiration for the engraving on the silver punchbowl believed to have been commissioned by Sir Joseph Banks to commemorate the voyage.
