"Carte Reduite des Parties Septentrionales du Globe, Situees Entre l'Asie et l'Amerique"

Very unusual chart showing only the northeast coastline of Canada with Baffin and Hudson Bay and the St. Laurence River. On the other side is the northeast coastline of Asia with the Kamchatka peninsula. In between are a few small areas of coastline with notations concerning reported explorations, including those of Juan de Fuca, the Russian expedition in 1728 and 1741, the reported Sea of the West and the English quests for a Northwest Passage.
