Description

Scarce map of the NW Coast of America, Canada and Greenland, extending to Baffin Bay and the North Georgian Islands, illustrating the British Discoveries in the Arctic. The map accompanied the first edition of Franklin's Narrative of his second expedition to the Arctic, with his route from Lake Superior and Fort William to the Arctic Sea noted in Red. Includes nice detail in the Northwestern US and Canada, including a good snapshot of the Upper Missouri, Columbia and Fraser (unnamed) River regions, along with details along Franklin's route. An important milestone in the exploration of the region and pursuit of the Northwest Passage. Nice example, with full orginal margins, narrowed only in the upper left, as issued.
