Separate publication. This is the earliest folio-sized printed map of Captain Cook's third voyage, on which he explored the northwest coast of America and Alaska and was the first European to discover Hawaii. Although a note below the map says that it was engraved from one that appeared in the Gentlemen's Magazine of December 1780, that map has never been found.
Not in Wagner or other relevant references.
