Nuove scoperte fatte nel 1765, 67 e 69 nel Mare del Sud 1776

By Antonio Zatta

This is the first decorative map recording the Endeavour’s voyage of exploration to Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, as well as showing the tracks of Carteret, Byron and Wallis. The ship depicted in the vignette is almost certainly Cook’s ship, the Endeavour.

Antonio Zatta was an Italian mapmaker and publisher whose decorative maps provided a contrast to the more austere and technical maps from the same period.
