La Nuova Olanda e la Nuova Guinea. Rome, 1798. Coloured. 365 x 490mm. Australia and New Guinea, from the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale'. The emphasis of the map is the charting of Captain Cook down the east coast: most of the marked features are those named by Cook and his crew betwen the Torres Strait and Tasmania, which is shown as part of the mainland. The title is within a decorative title cartouche with two aboriginies, one of whom strangely carries a bow.

VL20.14 Cook mapped the east coast of New Holland which he dubbed New South Wales. This was the official name given to the British colony started there in 1788 by Captain Arthur Philip. This globe shows an accurate depiction of the northern and western coasts of Australia mapped by the Dutch and a fanciful guess of the southern and eastern coasts.
