A CHART SHEWING THE TRACT OF CAPT. COOK'S LAST VOYAGE. 1799.

New York: Prepared for Payne's Geography, Published by J. Low, [1799]. Map, 8-1/2" x 11-3/4". Likely removed from a copy of John Payne's NEW AND COMPLETE SYSTEM OF UNIVERSAL GEOGRAPHY, VOL. IV, New York, 1799. Light wear. Small archival repair to bottom edge with only slight loss of map border. Very Good.

The map shows the Pacific Ocean surrounded by bordering continents with a bit of the Arctic Sea and Frozen Ocean depicted at the top. This map is said to be one of the first maps of the Pacific Ocean printed in the United States.
