Description

3rd State. The first printed map of present day central Canada issued by Cornelis van Wytfliet in editions of his Descriptionis Ptolemaicae Augmentum first published in Louvain in 1597. The basic cartography derives from Gerard Mercator's world map of 1569, which first depicted a large body of water inland in the extreme north.
At the top of the map we find the North West Passage.
