Reproduction 1772 Chart of New Zealand

$95.00

The iconic map of New Zealand, the first showing all the islands. Engraved by J. Bayley. This reproduction is on quality art paper and is also available with modern hand-colouring. Lieut. Cook's chart (from his 1st voyage) was the first to show the whole of New Zealand. Cook made two errors - he plotted Banks Peninsula as an island and he was unsure whether Stewart Island was a peninsula or an island. His overall accuracy was remarkable.
