"A General Chart"

Published by Strahan and Cadell, 1784

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 
2016


This superior reproduction of the original copperplate engraving is from Cook's Last Voyage, originally published in 1784 by Strahan and Cadell of London. It traces the tracks of the Endeavour, the Adventure, the Resolution, and the Discovery during each of Captain Cook's three voyages of exploration.

As a record of Cook's historic Pacific discoveries, this is the most accurate and important world chart of the 18th century and, as such, is considered the first modern world map.

We custom-print this facsimile map on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio using the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years. Modern printing techniques allow us to improve and enhance the historical subject matter, even as we're careful to preserve and maintain its historical and artistic integrity.
