Uncommon, small map of the Americas that has an unusual, large landmass (for the period) in the Pacific Northwest reaching over to Asia. There are just a few place names and simple topography noted on this delicately engraved piece. The map is adorned with a title cartouche in the shape of a stone with a tree next to it. This map was published in Zatta's Grammatica Geografica, an Italian edition of Patrick Gordon’s Geography Anatomiz’d.
Issued folding with a bit of printer's ink residue.
