Queen Charlotte's Islands : J.Cook / A.Hogg

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An English edition of this detailed chart of the Santa Cruz islands, to the north of the New Hebrides, with Carteret's track in "Swallow"; including an inset chart of Carteret and Gower Islands. Relief is shown by hachuring; vegetation is marked by small tree-symbols, revealing that the tops of the mountains were wooded. Along the explored coast of the "Isle Du Lord Egmont", palm trees and huts have been drawn, perhaps marking native settlements. A particularly detailed volcano spewing smoke is shown in profile to the North of this island. Prevailing winds are marked with arrows.
