This is a very uncommon map of the North Pole, including Hudson and Baffin Bay, Greenland, Iceland, Spitzberg, and a partial coastline for Novaya Zemla. Hudson Bay is shown with two small bays in its southern end, one named James Bay, the other Bay du Nord, ou de Hudson. The map is inset with Les Isles de Fero, and Les Isles de Shetland.
An attractive example with wide original margins that have a couple short, repaired tears. Centerfold very faintly toned.
