[n.d., watermarked 1801.]
Engraved map with later colour. 275 x 220mm (10¾ x 8¾"). Trimmed to plate at sides, binding notches on right.
A chart of the approaches to Macao, drawn by William Bligh when he was Master of HMS Resolution, Cook's ship on his Third Voyage. The famous 'Mutiny on the Bounty' was nearly 20 years later in Bligh's career. The chart was published in the Official Account, 'Voyage to the Pacific Ocean', first published in 1785. The watermarked 1801 is a sign of the enduring interest in Cook's discoveries. Bligh's original chart is now lost.
