Summary:
This book traces the exploration and charting of the Pacific Ocean through rare maps of Japan and the varied islands of Oceania from the 1700s. It follows the story from classical times through the turn of the 20th century, telling the tales of seafarers who ventured eastward from Asia and were the Pacific's greatest explorers.
Through dozens of vintage maps, you'll learn how Portuguese mariners added major islands in the Southwest Pacific to the map in the early 16th century while Spanish explorers plotted vague specks of land in the vast center of the map. Witness as Dutch discoveries in Australia add significantly to the evolving image of the ocean, while the known islands of Oceania remained few, scattered, and so poorly charted as to be impossible for others to find.
