Nice antique copper engraved map of the Western Hemisphere showing explorers routes with dates, an early New Zealand and one very curious anomaly. The North/West Coast of America has been updated to include the entire western coastline above Capo Mendocino, Capo Blanco and the Bay of the West are shown too.

Good condition! Original colors, on strong paper with original watermark. Slightly trimmed at the top, just affecting the printed borders, but not the map image.
This is a genuine antique map published in 1786 and NOT a modern copy or reprint!
