Plan De L'Ile De Paque / Plan De La Baie De Cook ... : J. F. De La Perouse

An attractive and interesting composite plate comprising a general map of Easter Island, coastal profiles and large-scale detail of Cook Bay. Easter Island became known to Europeans after it was first sighted by Dutchman Jacob Roggeveen in 1722. 52 years later, in 1774, Captain James Cook spent some time there but didn't himself land on the island due to illness. However in 1786 the Frenchman Jean Francois De La Perouse did produce a more detailed survey which was published in the accounts of his voyage some ten years later. Minor repairs to old folds and marginal nicks but overall a good example of a scarce chart of this fascinating island.
