Notes

A Russian language version of the Tupaia Chart representing the isles of the South Sea, and Tahiti. The map is based upon the indigenous cartography of Tupaia, a Tahitian navigator who drew the map in 1770 while onboard Captain Cook's ship, the H.M.S. Endeavour. The islands mapped by Cook are underlined twice, by other Europeans once, and the remainder of which were illustrated and identified by Tupaia.
