A first edition of this clear and detailed map of the Pacific, covering the area from Tierra Del Fuego and Florida in the east to the island of Borneo in the west. This map was first published in John Arrowsmith's comprehensive and constantly updated London Atlas. Like his uncle the first Aaron Arrowsmith, John had a great interest in new discoveries and exploration, a passion reflected in his accurate maps of Australasia. Paper laid on old canvas, minor centrefold weakness not affecting image of map.
