SKU: ssmgfm/paci/001 Category:

An interesting and attractive early 19th century map of the Pacific which was drawn and engraved by H. Cooper and published in John Smith’s A System of Modern Geography (London: Sherwood, Neely, & Jones 1809-1811). An interesting feature is at the time of the map’s production, geographic knowledge of southern Australia (still known as ‘New Holland’) and New Zealand was either incomplete or inaccurate.
