Biography/History

Delamarche, a student of De Vaugondy, reissued a number of maps of his teacher Robert de Vaugondy, updating them to reflect the latest discoveries.

George Vancouver entered the history of exploration by joining both the second and the third expedition of James Cook. On his third expedition, Cook had been looking for the possible existence of the Northwest Passage (a sea route through or around North America), and in 1791 Vancouver was sent out to complete this search.
