Early edition of this fascinating map that shows the imaginary Sea of the West and a Northwest Passage stretching from Baffins Bay to the Archipel St. Lazare. There is not any sign of a recognizable Alaska. The British colonies are confined east of the Appalachian Mountains with French Louisiana stretching to the Pacific Northwest. Large and decorative title cartouche (uncolored, as issued).
Fine impression and original coloring. A couple light spots, else very good.
