Description
Kashnor notes, [quoted directly from the map] "It may be proper to inform the curious, that in laying down the Geography of Hudson's Bay and the Neighboring Coasts, &c., we have consulted and in some respects followed Capt. Middleton's Draught: But more particularly that of Capt Smith and the Officers of the Furnace Sloop and Discovery Pink from 52 to 67 North Latitude. We have also perused, and derived some assistance from a Chart of these parts lately published, Dedicated to Arthur Dobbs Esqr. The Authorities here referred to, are ye most authentick yet Extant: but the public is in great Expectation of New Discoveries from the Expedition of the Dobbs Galley and the California which passed Yarmouth the 31st of May 1746 under convoy of the Loo of 40 Guns, on their Voyage to Discover the N. W. passage by Hudson's Streight." Prime meridian: London. Relief: pictorial. Projection: Polar. Printing Process: Copper engraving. Verso Text: MS note: 446.
