This scarce map focuses on the area between Siberia and Kamchatka and extends to include the Russian possessions in Alaska. The northwest coast of America is misshapen with only a few place names, including Norton Sound (Entrata de Norton) and Alaska labeled along a narrow strip of the Alaskan Peninsula. The north Pacific Ocean is filled with a large scenic title cartouche.
A fine impression with minor soiling and a pin hole along the Kamchatka Peninsula.
