Description

A later edition of Guillaume De l'Isle's map. It still includes the fictitious discoveries of Baron de Lahontan: the legendary River Longue etc. The north west corner of Hudson Bay is left open, leaving the possibility of a north west passage open. De l'Isle's map was the first to show Detroit (founded by Cadillac) and the first to mention a settlement at Chicago.
