1800 – J. A. Dezauche – Mappemonde
Title: “Mappemonde a l’usage de l’instr.uction Par Guillaume Delisle et Philippe Buache et de l’Académie des Sciences Revue et Augmentée des N les Découvertes par Dézauche en 1800.”
Rare late edition of the De L’Isle-Buache double hemisphere map of the world, first published in 1720 by De L’Isle and first revised by Buache in 1745. The map is a marvelous depiction of the routes of Captain James Cook on this 3 voyages between 1773 and 1779. The map has been revised to show the United States (Etats Uis), a detailed post Vancouver treatment on Alaska and the Northwest Coast of America, a completed (but still conjectural) coastline of Australia, updated configuration for New Zealand and evidence of early contacts with islands near the Antarctic Circle. In the northern regions, the discoveries of MacKenzie are shown.
