Seller: totherafters (16,191) 100%, Location: Macon, Georgia, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 111749633304 Please scroll down under this description for additional views. Four copper plate engraved charts on one sheet, "Chart of Port Famine, Wood's Bay, Port Gallant and Fortescue Bay, Cordes's Bay and Harbour" book chart from AN ACCOUNT OF A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD, IN THE YEARS MDCCLXIV, MDCCLXV AND MDCCLXVI BY THE HONOURABLE COMMODORE BYRON, IN HIS MAJESTY'S SHIP THE DOLPHIN first section of Volume I of "An account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His present Majesty for making discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret, and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavor" published by John Hawkesworth in London 1773. The sheet measures 17 3/4" by 10 7/8", plate measures 9 1/4" by 15 3/4". The paper is age-toned. The fold lines are from the way it was folded into the book and there are some faint "ghost" transfers of printing on the paper as a result. The far right end has some slight tears and the top edge is cut unevenly. This and other maps were removed from an incomplete copy of Volume I. In poor condition, without front and back boards- just a partial leather spine split into two sections- missing some of the text and maps from the middle. After consideration of the overall condition of the book, we decided to sell the charts individually for framing or study. It will be shipped in protective packaging.
