Third state of this lovely map that covers eastern Canada and Greenland from the bottom of Hudson Bay, northward beyond the Arctic Circle to about 70° N. latitude. It includes an interesting depiction of a passage between Lake Winnipeg and Hudson Bay alluding to a possible navigatable passage to the Pacific. The sheet is decorated with a large title cartouche. This is the top sheet of a two-part map; thus it does not cover the whole region indicated in the title. The map has full borders and stands on its own without the other sheet.
