Scope and content
This map of North America published by G. Tasso in Venice is based on Le Sage's and Buchon's earlier map of North America. The title cartouche also refers to the earlier explorations In North America by Lewis & Clark, Parry and Franklin. The impressive map shows North America from Greenland over the Hudson Bay towards Alaska in the very far Northwest. The Missouri and Oregon territories are nicely shown on the map. At the left side a small table with color explanations for the various possessions in North America.
