Robert de Vaugondy’s 1756

Word renowned author Geoffrey Blainey and Penguin Books Australia teamed up to produce this stunning account of the battle of the high seas. Geoffrey’s book titled Sea of Dangers, Captain Cook and His Rivals described at length Robert du Vaugondy’s role on the high seas. This map was created to mimic one of Robert’s very first maps of New Holland (now Australia). The map is set in the period of 1756.
