Although concentrating on the northern Pacific, this map show all of North America and Mexico.
A very interesting Northwest Passage is shown.
While the Russian coastline is shown with reasonable accuracy, notwithstanding Terre d'Yeso , the American coastline north of Cape Mendocino is very hypothetical and largely incorrect.
There is a large western, island, sea and no real sense of Alaska at all. With the large "Mer de L'Ouest" or "Sea of the West" in California.
A series of lakes joined by rivers seem to hold some promise of the elusive north-west passage, but the delineation is indistinct as if to emphasize Santini's uncertainty.
The map was prepared by the Venetian cartographer and publisher François (Père) Santini and first published in Santini's 'Atlas Universel dresse sur les meuilleures cartes modernes 1776.'
Santini collaborated with Janvier and gives credit to him on most of his maps. The atlas is effectively an Italian copy of the Robert de Vaugondy 'Atlas Universel'.
In 1784 Santini sold the plates to M. Remondini, whose name appears on this particular example - indicating that this is the second state of the map.
Reference: Mcguirk, Mer de l'Ouest, 163.
