A beautiful and crisp engraving of the western hemisphere with some interesting notations. While immediately the pronounced Island of California catches the eye, and the distorted and misplaced Mississippi river is recognizable, it's the Pacific Northwest coast stretching into Alaska that can make an impression. While the map was done prior to Cook and numerous Russian expeditions, the outline is recognizable. Certainly the detail is speculative and includes a few placenames to inspire reliability, it actually is closer to reality than any of its peers.
Does also include the a massive inland sea in the upper West and central western Canada that states "The Great Lake Of Thongo or Thoya". Also includes the legendary "7 Cities" and "Quivira".
Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 12.75 x 14.5 (inches)
