This handsome chart is a close copy of the Jocobsz/Goos landmark chart of the northern regions from the Faeroe Islands north of Scotland to Baffin Island where a legend states [Here is fresh fish, dead whales, white foxes and fresh salmon]. The map is beautifully ornamented with a large title cartouche flanked by whalers and the distance scale cartouche surrounded by a siren family. It is also adorned with ships, a whale, compass roses and rhumb lines.
