This nice map of the Americas also includes a good bit of western Europe and Africa. The unusual northwest coast of America includes Straat van Martin d'Aguilarde, which provides for a Northwest Passage through a river and lake system to the Great Lakes. The northwest is virtually blank with a notation concerning the Russian explorations in 1743. The European colonies are shown by dotted lines extending to the Mississippi River. Simple title cartouche and nice compass rose.
Fine crisp impression. Folding as issued.
