The Pacific Ocean remained a mystery to mapmakers until the latter part of the eighteenth century. This book traces the exploration and charting of the great ocean through a cornucopia of rare and beautiful maps stretching from Japan on the northwest through Juan Fernandez on the southeast, with the varied islands of Oceania the main focus. It follows the story from Classical times up to the turn of the twentieth century.
