recent arrival
An uncommon map of the world shown on a pair of polar projections indicating the lines of, and areas covered by, the transit of Venus across the "Sun's Disc" in June 1761. Incorporating the "Mer De L'Ouest" of North America and incomplete Australian outline this is a fascinating record of the anticipated transit which prompted Cook's observations in the Pacific. This scientific map was probably published in a volume of Academic Transactions. Upper and lower margins close and reinforced.
