Map of New Mexico, Louisiana, parts of Georgia, North Carolina and the Michigan lakes. Inset map of Baffin and Hudson Bay.
Sheet 21 of Schraembl's "Allgemeiner Grosser Atlas", this is one of the first maps issued to depict North America following the American Revolutionary War. While this map has been updated to reflect the surveys prepared under Massachusetts governor Thomas Pownall, it is heavily based upon the important 1783 map of North America issued by Sayer and Bennet. The whole is beautifully rendered with wonderful detail regarding the early states, roads, canals, the Great Lakes, American Indian Nations, and explorer's observations. Most of the southern states are without western boundaries.
In the upper left corner there is an inset of the Baffin and Hudson Bay region including some references to the explorations of Admiral De Fonte in search of a Northwest Passage, as well as to the indigenous Eskimo tribes.
Reference: McCorkle 788.6, Phillips (A) 694-36a-d, Stevens & Tree 49.
