Description

Map of North and South America. California is shown as an island and Great Lakes are shown with an open western coastline. No northwestern coast drawn beyond 40 degrees. The Mississippi River is still very vaguely drawn and pushed far west of its true location. South America retains its excessively wide format. An extension from Button's Bay is shown as a possible Northwest Passage.

The map is embellished with two cartouches, 9 sailing vessels and vignettes of native villages, native warriors and indigenous animals.
