Description

Scarce map of Iceland and Greenland, along with a remnant of the coast of the mythical island of Frisland, published by David Cranz in his history of Greenland.

In 1759, David Crantz (or Cranz) was sent to Greenland for a year by the Moravian Church.  Crantz (1723-77) published in 1765 his detailed observations on the country, its people and their way of life, including a history of the Moravian mission there.
