Description: Hand colored copperplate engraved showing the tracks of Capt. Cook, Capt. Dampier and Capt. Carteret to New Britain, New Guinea, New Ireland and surrounding islands.
Philip Carteret,he also discovered a new archipelago inside Saint George's Channel between New Ireland and New Britain Islands (Papua New Guinea) and named it Duke of York Islands. William Dampier reached the southern coast of New Guinea (Irian Jaya) on 1699. He explored much of its western and northern coast, and discovered Dampier Strait dividing New Guinea from New Britain. He might quite possibly have sailed on and anticipated Cook's discovery of the eastern coast of Australia, but the Roebuck was now leaking badly. He made for Batavia where the ship was repaired and sailed for England on 17 October.
