Very attractive, small map focusing on Greenland, Baffin Bay, Hudson Bay and Labrador. Greenland is shown with the three island configuration that began with Sanson. Baffin Bay is shown with a large James Island within it, and the coast discovered by Middleton in 1742 is noted at the western portion of the map.

Very nice coloring with light edge toning and hinge remnants in the top margin.
