  • North America

    This is a finely engraved map of North America with each nation individually colored. A large New Albion stretches across the California coast north of San Francisco and a few rivers are sketched heading inland. The detail in Canada, deriving from Hudson Bay sources, is excellent. A large Louisiana is seen west of the United States. There is no sign of Lewis and Clark and information about the upper Missouri River are the rivers reported by Indians and incorporated into better British maps. Very good.

    Image size is 9 x 11.5, beautiful full hand color.
