Fine example of this German edition of Cook's explorations along the northwest coast of America and northeast coast of Asia, based upon the original work by Lieutenant Henry Roberts.

Excellent detail in the Behring Straits, including extensive notes on soundings. Cook's tracks are shown with dates and notes of other explorers, including Bodega and Mackenzie's tracks in Canada and the Arctic Circle. Information derived from Hearn and others exploring the Northwest Passage and western Hudson Bay, by land and sea, are also included.

Schraembl was born and worked in Vienna, where he was a mapmaker in the latter half of the eighteenth century. He began his business in 1787, partnering with Franz Johann Joseph von Reilly. He is best known for his large format atlas, the Allgemeiner Grosser Atlas. The atlas was finished in 1800, after twenty years of compilation and composition--it was the first Austrian world atlas. While a notable work, the atlas did not sell well, plunging Schraembl into financial difficulty. In response, Schraembl expanded his offerings to include literature and art. Upon his death, Schraembl's firm was taken over by his widow, Johanna, and her brother, Karl Robert Schindelmayer. From 1825, it was run by Franz Anton's son, Eduard.
