Published by Robert De Vaugondy in "Encyclopedie:Suite Du Recueil Des Planches, Sur Les Sciences, Les Arts Liberaux ..." this map is one of a series created to illustrate the evolving concepts of the outline of the North American north and west coasts, both fanciful and proven. In this map, number 6 in the series, the confusion over a northwest passage, Sea of the West and the innumerable interconnecting waterways are clearly displayed. The plate is divided into two sections - the upper showing a copy of the prominent French theoretical cartographer Philippe Buache's summary, the lower showing detail from a Japanese map.
