recent arrival
An attractive and interesting World map, unusually, with Australia and the Pacific central to the projection. The map, by prolific and influential Paris mapmaker, Rigobert Bonne appeared in "Atlas de toutes les parties connues du globe terrestre, dresse pour l'histoire philosophique et polique des etablissement et du commerce des Europeens dans le deux Indes". The map's projection allows a clear depiction of the Pacific where the most interesting outlines appear. Although published about 1780, the map makes no reference to Cook's voyages which had re-defined European knowledge of the area in the 1770's. Notably Australia and New Zealand appear incomplete, the fictional Mer De L'Ouest of NW America is clearly marked and Alaska is vaguely defined. Routes of earlier explorers, the Manilla track to Mexico are well marked.
