NEW GUINEA A MAP OF THE DISCOVERIES MADE BY CAPTn WILLm DAMPIER IN THE ROEBUCK IN 1699

Code: M1626

Cartographer: Emanuel

Date: 900:/001744-48 London

Size: 21*32cms

Emanuel Bowen produced this map in the Complete Collection of Voyages 1744-47, showing the discoveries by the English explorer William Dampier in the New Guinea, Timor regions. Dampier's 1697 voyage of discovery to New Holland had originally called for him to round the Horn and to approach New Guinea from the east coast of Australia. But due to a late departure and the onset of winter it was decided to follow the Dutch route around Africa. Despite a less than seaworthy ship Dampier managed to land his crew on Dirk Hartog island off the coast of Western Australia and soon after headed north looking for fresh water. Some 50 years earlier Abel Tasman had charted the northwest coast of Australia but had left large gaps in his charts. Dampier, certain there was a passage to the south seas, headed for Timor. After a refit and supplies, Dampier headed east and on the first day of 1700 sighted the west coast of New Guinea. This map can be attributed to this sighting. Uncoloured as issued.Strong impression,Mint condition. Ref: Mooreland & Bannister, p.166 SOLD
