Eastern Hemisphere Africa Asia New Holland Captain Cook voyages 1801 lg Cary map
(Africa / Asia / Europe / Australia / Pacific). Issued London, 1801-08 by John Cary. Rare and interesting early 19th century large folio sheet antique western hemisphere map. Engraved with beautiful original full hand color. Many specific exploration tracks shown within the oceans, including the minute variations of the courses as they all wandered in open seas in search of lands. New South Wales Australia with note Discovered by Capt.

Most of interior Africa is PARTS UNKNOWN. Original fold line as issued. Edges unevenly cut and slightly crooked due to trimming, several small edge splits or maringal paper defects. Could still readily be displayed as it survives to great visual effect; would also warrant restoration if desired given beauty and scarcity factor. Should be considered a lovely large old map with some paper condition issues and acquired thus.

Not perfect, but still nice looking in its own way. Display a noble age patina, like a map which has survived battle wounded, but is still very much alive. Atlases in Library of Congress. (noting leter versions of the atlas as well).

123 but only noting 1811 as the first example of his New Universal Atlas within which this map appeared. We do not sell modern reprints.
