Description

Interesting map of the Western Hemisphere showing explorers routes with dates, an early New Zealand and one very curious anomaly. At first look, the NW Coast of America has been updated to include the entire western coastline above Capo Mendocino and Capo Blanco, extending further westward in a convex fashion and seemingly rejecting the earlier French post Buache-De L'Isle models which included the Bay of the West & the discoveries of Aguilar & De Font. However, on closer look, the Bay of the West & related landmarks are still shown, one of the only maps to retain both features. A very unusual map.

Slightly trimmed at top and bottom, just affecting the printed borders, but not the map image.
