La Nuova Zelanda trascorsa nel 1769 e 1770 dal Cook comandante dell'Endeavour vascello di S.M. Britannica.
1794 - Venice, 1794. Original outline colour. 455 x 360mm. Minor restoration on verso to strenghten verdigris weakness caused by the original colour, otherwise a good example with wide margins. This is one of the most decorative versions of Cook's map of New Zealand, engraved by Zuliani after Pasquali. Cook's route around the islands is marked in colour, and the title vignette shows a Maori village. This is the second state with the new engraved date of 1794, issued in Zatta's edition of Cook's Voyages rather than his atlas; as such it is scarcer than the original edition. TOOLEY: Australia 1433.
