Description

A Fascinating Cartographic Teaching Tool with a Curious Northwest Passage

Large format map of America, intended as a teaching tool.

While the map is large, the geographical features are devoid of names and it was likely the purpose of the author to have place names added.

The treatment of the Northwest Passage is quite interesting for a teaching device, and certainly requires explanation.

Engraved by J.B. Tardieu.

Rarity

The map is apparently very rare.  We were unable to locate another example on OCLC or otherwise.
