  • Carte Generale Du Globe Terrestre Construite...

    A world map on Mercator projection with bold original hand color outlining each of the continents. Has a fascinating treatment of North America with a vast Sea of the West, as well as chain of rivers and lakes across Canada which implies a Northwest passage. Speculations continue throughout the Pacific with apparent islands shown, with long expansive coasts being reported off of Kamtchatka (1741) and another above Siberia (1723).

    Condition is good with a close lower right hand margin and an old repaired opening tear, images size is 9 x 13 (inches)
