While this large, striking map of the Pacific was created as a sea chart, it does great service to North and South American coastlines, complete with references to cities, towns, ports, and rivers. Early American settlements listed in this map include, St. Augustine, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Plymouth. The legendary Island of California is prominently shown just west of North America separated by Mer Vermeio, a fictitious sea containing a spattering of false islands.

The island of Japan is depicted with a partial coastline of Hokkaido labeled Terre d’Eso ou Yedso. Partial coastlines are also mapped for New Guinea, Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. Two compass roses punctuate the northwest and southeast portions of the Pacific Ocean. The map was published in one of the most complete sea atlases of its time, Le Neptune Francois.

Condition: This map is in A condition with quaint original coloring. There are several cracks in the margin that have been closed and reinforced with archival tape on the verso.
