This 1778 map of New Zealand is one of the first copies of Cook's 1772 chart. Rigobert Bonne (1727-95) included a compass rose and four inserts on his copy - viz. Cook Strait, Bay of Islands, Mercury Bay and Tolaga Bay. He also copied Cook's mistakes - Banks Peninsula as an island and Stewart Island as a possible peninsula.
