¤ Carte du continent américain. - Prepared by l'Isle and published by Phil. Buache. Redrawn and re-engraved with the inset continuation of the N.W. coast corrected according to Capt.

To the north appears "entrée d'Aguilar, entrée du Roi Georges and Fousang des Chinois".
The Great Lakes are now more accurately drawn and the huge L.Bourbon compressed. Port Royale, Halifax, Plaisance (New Foundland) Portsmouth, Philadelphia shown. The Papal line of Demarcation and the Isles de Quiros are erased and the title cartouche has been enlarged.
