An unusual small map of the Arctic regions of North America and the coast of Asia showing only coastal place names. Alaska is fairly well formed. A passage between Repulse Bay and the Arctic Ocean is noted as discovered by Cluny in 1768. There is also a notation spanning Canada concerning the long sought after Northwest Passage.
