Unexpected Adventures Told in Three Maps: Western Australia, the Indian Ocean, and Captain James Cook's First Voyage
USAOrganisation: University of Miami Special CollectionsFeaturing Kate Hunter, Senior Specialist, Daniel Crouch Rare Books in conversation with Arthur Dunkelman, Curator, Jay I. Kislak Collection
Hunter will share stories about three maps. The first is a map of Western Australia, where she grew up. The second is a Dutch East India Company [VOC] 18th-century chart of the Indian Ocean on vellum that helped the company establish a trade route that netted a fortune. Lastly, she will look at a silver punch bowl whose upside-down surface includes an engraved map that is an early rendering of Captain James Cook's first voyage (1769–1770).
