Diderot's Encyclopedia is acknowledged as one of the first extensive and exhaustive sources of information concerning the sciences, arts and crafts. Published in Paris, in numerous editions, from 1751 to 1780 and, in revised form, into the next century, the "Encyclopedie, Ou Dictionnaire Raisonne Des Sciences, Des Arts, Et Des Metiers", was chiefly overseen and edited by Denis Diderot of the Academy of Sciences. Amongst its many and varied sections was a small atlas of just ten map plates illustrating and describing the many different interpretations and expectations regarding the landmasses of the northern approaches to the Pacific whether from arctic Asia, Canada or the American northwest. these are many interesting and unusual depictions of the north Pacific coastlines.This particular map shows the coasts of Russian Tartary, from Scandinavia to Japan, with the Straits of Anian. Four insets focus on the northern and Pacific coasts of N. America, including one of Alaska, two of California, and one of Arctic Canada.
