Rare variant edition of this unusual map of the North Sea (Atlantic Ocean) from the Polar Circle to the Equator, showing much of North America, the Caribbean, and parts of Europe and Africa.
The map is apparently a rare French edition of the map first issued in George Bickham's British Monarchy c.1740, but this map is substantially larger.
The detail in the British Colonies in North America includes Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and New England. Very curious projection of Florida.
A rare and fascinating map. Narrow upper margin.
