Carte De La Nle Zelande... : J. Cook / Benard

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine and very attractive example of the most important map of New Zealand. This detailed map of New Zealand is from a French edition of Hawkesworth's "An Account of the Voyages Undertaken by the Order of His Present Majesty for Making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere", first published in London in 1773. For the previous 120 years, prior to Tasman's voyage dispelling the myth of a Great Southern Continent, Europeans had only known of a west coast for the land known as "Nouvelle Zeelandia". Captain James Cook's surveys of 1769 and 1770 gave shape and detail to this new land, here with each island defined by its traditional Maori name.
