Notes

Map of the route shown in red taken by Captain James Cook who commanded two ships the Resolution and the Discovery during the period of 1776-1779 on his third and last voyage of the Pacific. The map is well annotated but only very generally dated, indicating significant discoveries during his final voyage. The final leg of the voyage following Cook's death in Hawaii in Feb. 1779 appears to be undated.

Attributed to John Rickman, second lieutenant on the Discovery.

Prime meridian: Greenwich.
