Attractive small map of the Americas featuring the Island of California with an indented northern coast and part of the coast of New Zealand. This is the third state of the plate with the added coastlines of New Guinea, Diemens Land, Japan, and Land von Jesso in the Pacific. The depiction of Hudson Bay is odd, with a large landmass bisecting the bay.
