'Chart of the N.W. Coast of America and the N.E. Coast of Asia, Explored in the Years 1778 and 1779'
Roberts, H. (1808)
69 x 41

Important chart of the Pacific North West by Henry Roberts engraved by W Palmer and published by W. Faden. Roberts was the masters mate on the resolution and draughtsman after the death of Captain Cook. Although originally prepared for the authorised atlas of Cook's third voyage, it was never included in the atlas because disagreements amoungst the editors led to a very much plainer chart being produced. (engraved by Harmar) Instead the plate was sold to W. Faden and separately published in 1784. Later states were published in 1794 and 1808. It shows much more information about the discoveries in the Pacific Northwest of America and particularly about the interior of the region than the official chart. Fine original colour. Some small areas of damage have been repaired with no loss of engraving otherwise generally good condition with wide margins.
