MAPPE MONDE - 1778

Original antique copper engraved map by Robert de Vaugondy
With hand original colour
Engraved by E. Dussy. Published by Fortin in Nouvel Atlas Portatif, Paris, 1778.

The cartography reflects the most recent discoveries of the late 18th century explorers. Australia is outlined in full, including an attached Tasmania, as is New Zealand.
In North America, there is scant detail between Hudson Bay, marked as an English possession, and the Pacific Coast, where a printed note alludes to Russian discoveries.
