About This Item

Dublin: United Company of Booksellers, by Christr. Byrne, 1784. Maps. Very good overall. The general chart for a Dublin edition of Cook's Voyages, re-engraved & printed by the Byrne family. A very impressive and unusual map, as the Irish editions are very often found without maps. The very bright impression, on high quality laid paper, persuades us that this is an early pull from this plate, most likely the 1784 Dublin edition, Beddie 1546. All three of Cook's voyages' tracks are marked with dates. Neatly flattened, backed on acid-free tissue, some old folds strengthened. 35 x 22.8 inches, with full margins.
