Notes

A very rare and early dissected map jigsaw puzzle. The engraving of this double hemisphere globe is attributed to William Palmer and shows the tracks of Anson and three voyages of Captain Cook. Palmer has clearly borrowed from his "General chart" at the beginning of his official account of Cook's third voyage.
