"Carte Particuliere de L'Amerique Septentrionale, ou font Compris le Detroit de Davids, le Detroit de Hudson, &c.", Mortier, Pierre

Color: Hand Color
32.5 x 23 inches
82.6 x 58.4 cm
A beautifully engraved, large sea chart of the Arctic regions covering from Hudson and Baffins bays to Iceland and a bit of the coast of Ireland. Interestingly the Detroit d' Anian is located (lower left corner) quite close to the open-ended Buttons Bay. The chart is based on Sanson's cartography, and though it offers nothing new, it is a large, impressive chart.
