A nice little world map, neatly executed and showing the status of discoveries in the world. The Northwest coast of North America is largely blank with the furthest north point noted as discovered in 1741. There are some political divisions shown, including the British colonies (extending nearly to the Pacific). Ref: Jolly GENT-94
