Vienna: Gestochen von J. Stenger, [1788]. One sheet (of 4), approx. 23" x 26½", lightly hand-colored in outline; fine. This is the upper left part of the 4-sheet map of North America (sheet no. 21), featuring the northwestern part of North America, and includes an inset map of Baffin and Hudson Bay: "Specialkarte von der Baffin und Hudsons Bai." Includes descriptive and historical notes throughout the map. Shows boundaries, forts, roads, mines, and Indian villages and tribal territory. This is a German-language edition of the 4-sheet map of North America first brought out by Emmanuel Bowen and John Gibson in London about 1775; the engraver Franz Anton Schraembl has apparently based it on one of the states of 1777 or later. The four sheets are numbered 20-23, and this particular sheet is no. 21 showing the Mississippi Basin as far south as Natchez, the Great Lakes (except Ontario), and west to California. Item #50030
