Pacific Ocean (North) by Francesco & Paolo Santini 1776-79

Cornerstone map of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. It depicts the discoveries of the Russians in the early 18th century, including the tracks of Bering's first and second voyages, Joseph Nicolas Delisle's voyage with Capt. Tchirikow, in 1741, the track of De Frondat's voyage from China to California in 1709. The route of the Spanish Galleons from Acapulco, Mexico, to Manilla, Philippines, in 1743 is also shown.


Francesco and Paolo Santini (c.1729-1793)

Francesco Santini, a Venetian publisher, acquired the printing plates of Vaugondy’s Atlas Universel …, a commercial and cartographic success, with widespread influence on mapmakers throughout Europe. Together with his brother Paolo, he commissioned a new set of plates and reissued the atlas in 1776. The following year, Paolo Santini assigned all his publication rights to M. Remondini, who in 1777 reissued the same atlas but with his name.
