Very attractive, small map focusing on Greenland, Baffin Bay, Hudson Bay and Labrador. Greenland is shown with the three island configuration that began with Sanson. Baffin Bay is shown with a large James Island within it, and the coast discovered by Middleton in 1742 is noted at the western portion of the map.
