The map shows great information on the hunt for the Northwest Passage via Hudson Bay. Much of Greenland and the western part of North America remain undiscovered.

    Description:
    Rare map by Phillipe Buache of the Pacific Ocean and is one of the earliest attempts at thematic mapping in the field of geology. This map illustrates Buache's theory that geological features of land masses, particularly mountain ranges, continue under the surface of the oceans and interconnect the continents. Buache was a French geographer who studied under Guillaume Delisle and was nominated royal geographer in 1729. He established the division of the world by seas and river systems and believed in a southern continent, a hypothesis which was confirmed by later discoveries.
