Description

Rare map of the Northern part of North America, from Forster's Geschichte der Reisen, die seit Cook an der Nordwest- und Nordost-Küste von Amerika und in dem nördlichen Amerika selbst von Meares, Dixon, Portlock, Coxe, Long

Very nicely engraved map that incorporates the recent discoveries by Capt. Cook. Covers all of Canada, Alaska and south to Cape Mendocino and Long Island. Shows all of the Great Lakes, Baffin and Hudson Bays, the Aleutians, and the Bering Strait. The northern coastline is indistinct with only a short portion at the Coppermine River delineated. Details include Indian nations, major cities, watershed and topography. A fascinating composite of the reported explorations in the region through 1790.
