HAWKESWORTH, John

A Chart and Views of Pitcairn's Island

London, 1773
185 x 255 mm., in good condition.
This map comes from the official account of the First Voyage of the Pacific by Captain James Cook published in 1773. It records the voyage of Captain Carteret (1766-69) to Pitcairn’s Island in the South Pacific. The Island would of course become famous as the home of Fletcher Christian after the mutiny of the Bounty. For the compilation of this work Hawkesworth received £6,000 from the Admiralty Shirley G.Hawk 1a no. 10.
