Karte von Australien oder Polynesien : Schreiber's Erben

A scarce and attractive map with good detail of the newly discovered "Neu Holland" and Pacific Islands, many recently identified by James Cook. Published in a reissue of Johann Georg Schreiber's miniature atlas by his successors, this would be one of the earliest maps to detail Cook's discoveries and shows tasmania still attached to the mainland before the discoveries of George Bass, identifying the intervening Strait. A little surface staining and old inking in the margins but an acceptable and interesting map.
