Article descriptionCopper engraving, hand colored in outline. A highly interesting old map for the North American continent, including a fairly unexplored Northwestcoast showing the so-called ,Sea of the West (Mer de L'Ouest)' with engraved notes on early explorations in this region (Jean de Fuca 1592 and Martin de Aguilar 1603). Further the map covers the Northern Pacific regions with engraved notes on earlier explorations. It extends towards the Asian continent with Siberia, Kamtchatka, Japan, Korea and China. This old map is equipped with lots of information on earlier explorations, it encludes place names, mountains, lakes and rivers. The map first appeared in Santini's Atlas Universel in 1776-79 in Paris. In 1784 Santini sold the plates of the maps to M. Remondini, who published then these maps in Venice with his additional imprint in the title cartouches.
