A large scale and rare chart of the Pacific from the "Suite De Neptune Francois" - the atlas of non-European waters published by Mortier. Although centred on the vast empty pre-Cook Pacific, Japan and Company's Land, California island and North America, the Caribbean, west coast of South America, Tasman's outlines for New Zealand, Van Diemen's Land and Carpentaria are all well defined and form a border of landmasses. Finely engraved, this is a good example of the largest printed chart of the Pacific to date.
