A very uncommon small map of the Americas featuring the Island of California prominently. The Fretum Anian connects to a faintly engraved river, alluding to a Northwest Passage and the northwest coastline is named Terra Iedso al: Esonis. The British colonies are confined to the eastern seaboard with only Pennsylvania and Virginia named. The title cartouche incorporates decorative elements from one of Homann's maps of America.

Some scattered foxing mostly in margins and border.
