A clear and detailed chart of the Pacific Ocean. Points of interest noted by Bellin include the antipodes of the city of Paris, south-east of New Zealand, and the nationalities who discovered various islands, with the date. Australia is tentatively joined to Tasmania and New Guinea with a dotted, uncoloured line. A vivid depiction of the state of European knowledge, just a few years before James Cook's voyages would define the ocean's islands and coastlines.
