Carte des parties nord et ouest de l'Amérique dressée d'apres les relations les plus authentiques Robert de Vaugondy, Didier, 1723-1786
Copper-plate engraving, hand-coloured along borders and mountain ranges. Depicts North America with a detailed east coast including several territories, but the west and northwest coast are still mostly unknown. The possibility for a Northwest Passage is left open by the unfinished borders above the series of depicted islands in the upper-left corner.
