BELLIN, Jacques-Nicolas.

Carte Reduite des Parties Septentrionales du Globe Situées Entre L'Asie et L'Amerique.
Amsterdam, 1777. Coloured. 225 x 355mm.

A Dutch edition of Bellin's map of the American Arctic, which attempts to show recorded observations rather than conjecture, leaving large areas blank. West coast America is shown according to Juan de Fuca and the Russiians, but Bellin discounts the 'pretend' discoveries of De Fonte.
