Original Chart of New South Wales or the East Coast of New Holland, discovered by Lieutenant James Cook, Commander of H.M. Bark, Endeavour -1770

Short Description

The French version – “Carte de la Nle. Galles Meridle. ou de la cote orientale de la Nle. Hollande, decouverte et visitee par le Lieutenant J. Cook, Commandant de L’Endeavour, vassieu de sa Majeste en 1770

Original copperplate engraving by distinguished cartographer Robert Benard recording Cook’s navigational records, published in Paris circa 1774. Large format 77cm by 36cm, original folds, coloured in outline.

On his first of three voyages James Cook discovered and charted the East Coast of Australia for the first time and this chart resulted from that work. There are many interesting features including Mt Warning, the Glass House Mountains (named as such because they reminded Cook of the view of the coastal Glass Kilns as seen from the water in the South West of England) and the record of the grounding on the reef of Cape Tribulation before recovering the vessel in the Endeavour River in the Far North.
