This little map of North America features California as an Island with an indented northern coast. The Great Lakes are closed off and roughly accurate, though lakes Erie and Ontario appear merged. The course of the Mississippi River runs too far to the west and an unmarked river at its headwaters almost connects it to Hudson Bay. The northwest coast above California is completely blank. Marked page number 170 at top right. Not listed in McLaughlin.
