44. 1787 Map of East Coast Australia

Bonne

29×43cm Copper plate on Paper Two-way framed

Original 1787 Bonne hand-coloured copper-engraved map of Captain Cook?s Voyage up the east coast of Australia including inset map of Botany Bay in 1770. The 250th Anniversary is in 2020. Rare. In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne?s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic.
