First state of Janvier's map of America, published in Paris in 1762.

Shows a marvelous oversized mythical Bay of the West, unusual Alaskan Archipelago (again completely conjecture and myth), inaccurate course of the Mississippi River, and a marvelous primitive look at the two Americas, slightly before the Revolutionary War in the US.

No sign of Hawaii. New Zealand is shown, although only partially known.
