Description:

Rare map of the Northern Hemisphere by Reichard.

Includes a supposed coastline of North America in the NW Passage and excellent cartographical detail in Canada, Alaska and along the NE Passage. Quivira is named and the watershed of the Missouri River is shown in a very unusual configuration, heading due north well into Canada.

Fascinating as a pre-Lewis & Clark item not referenced by Wheat. Excellent detail along the NW Coast of America, based upon Cook, Vancouver & La Perouse.


Condition Description: A bit of waterstaining in the lower left and right corners, but a good example of this rare map.
