Indian Ocean, anno 1775, map by La Perouse
[Welt 210/1]

Carte Des Declinaisons Et Inclinaisons De L'Aiguille Aimantee... Interesting chart of the Indian Ocean showing magnetic variation. Presumably compiled, at least in part, from La Perouse's last voyage to the Pacific in 1775 and also with the slightly later work of Jean-Charles Borda, credited with the first observations on the variations in terrestrial magnetism, in mind. Size of the leaf: 60x52 cm.. Nr. 3 of an 8 sheet map which was probably compiled from the reports of La Perouse´s last voyage in the Pacific and is by Jean-Charles Borda. some small tears on margins, the map was folded, little brownish, foxed.
