Carte Des Nouvelles Decouvertes Au Nord De La Mer Du Sud, ... : J. N. De L'Isle / P. Buache

A fine example of a famous and interesting map. Showing all the north Pacific, from Japan and Korea, to the Arctic and including all North America, the map's immediate impact is in the depiction of the cartography of the supposed waterways in the American north-west and "Mer De L'Ouest" derived from the apocryphal voyages of the Spanish Admiral de Fonte and Juan de Fuca. Beyond this, however, the real significance of this "key map" map lies in its delineation of the tracks of the voyages of Vitus Bering (1728-30 and 1741-42, with Cherikov). Philippe Buache compiled the map from detail provided by his brother-in-law, Joseph-Nicolas de L'Isle, cartographer to the Russian Court and son of Guillaume. This example, in attractive light colour, re-issued by Dezauche.
