The map covers eastern Canada and Greenland from the bottom of Hudson Bay, northward beyond the Arctic Circle to about 70? N latitude. It includes an interesting depiction of a passage between Lake Winnipeg and Hudson Bay alluding to a possible passage to the Pacific. Fine decorative title cartouche.
Nice impression and thick paper. Faint damp stains in margins barely affecting borders and crease parallel to centerfold, else very good.
