A nice miniature map from this interesting series. California is shown as an island on the Brigg's model with a flat northern coastline. The northwestern coastline of North America starts to extend west near 60° N. The major difference between this and Mallet's similar Western Hemisphere map is the addition of an extensive coastline in the region of Australia and New Guinea and the addition of several Pacific islands. State 2 from the German edition.
