A finely engraved and highly detailed chart of the entire California coast summarising the results of recent discoveries. The chart shows from San Francisco in the north to Santa Domingo in the south marking Vancouver's voyage along the coast. Vancouver marks the Spanish missions and presidio (forts), along with an indication of the coastal profile and sounding depths. Inset plans at upper right show the port of San Diego and the entrance to San Francisco harbour, today spanned by the Golden Gate Bridge. First published in the English account of Vancouver's voyage in 1798, this French version appeared just a few years later - this is labelled as No.4 in the "Voyage De Vancouver" . In combining his own observations with earlier Spanish and British charts, George Vancouver, who had sailed with Cook on his third voyage, created the best delineation of the Pacific Northwest - a two thousand five hundred mile stretch of coastline virtually unknown to Europeans twenty-five years earlier.
