After the famous De L'Isle (Joseph Nicholas) and Philippe Buache map of 1750.

Although concentrating on the northern Pacific, this map shows all of North America and Mexico. 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.
The map is of interest for the use of 'Mer de Corée' for the sea between Korea and Japan. There is a large western sea, and no real sense of Alaska at all. With the large Mer ou Baye de L'Quest 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 emphasise 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 enlarged Italian copy of the Robert de Vaugondy 'Atlas Universel', with some 30 additional maps after other - mostly - french mapmakers. 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. Decorative title cartouche.
