    This finely engraved chart of Greenland and Iceland shows the Davis Strait and a portion of Baffin Island in Northeast Canada. Many harbors are located on Greenland's coast with inlets and bays. Three channels are marked with dotted lines apparently demarking the three islands that were thought to make up the tip of Greenland. A small hint of the northern coast of the fictitious Frisland appears as well.
