Carte De La Terre Van-Diemen ... : J.Cook / R.Bonne

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This map of part of Tasmania focuses on the coast line surrounding Adventure Bay, and an inset of this is provided in the upper left corner. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795), a prolific French cartographer, was active between about 1760 and 1788, working in the French Hydrographical Office, and appointed as Hydrographer to the French King. Bonne prepared a large number of charts which, although dispensing with the decorative embellishment of mid-century, are detailed items and provide good coverage of newly discovered regions. This map was engraved by Andre, whose signature appears in the lower margin, and is based on James Cook's surveys.
