DE WIT, Frederick [1610-1698].
Poli Arctici, Et Circumiacentium Terrarum Descriptio Novissima per Frederic de Wit.
Amsterdam: [c1715]..
17 x 19 1/2 inches (43.2 x 49.5 cm). engraving. original outline colour (light offsetting & very faint vertical crease). De Wit's Poli Arctici was based on Hondius' 1636 map with the same title. Issued in Renard and Ottens' Atlas de la Navigation, this edition has 'Fol. 3'above the plate mark, an entirely altered Iceland outline and revisions to 'Nova Zemla' (Kershaw's Sixth State & Burden's Seventh State). The map is decorated with four interesting scenes depicting whaling activities. Drawn on a polar projection, the map shows northern Europe, Greenland, Iceland, northern Canada, from Hudson's Bay to the St. Lawrence. The geographical information indicates knowledge gained from the explorations of Frobisher, David, Hudson, Button, Foxe and James. One of the most interesting features of the map (both the Hondius and De Wit editions) is the recognition: "(if conjecturally) the insular character of Baffin Island and, farther north, the possibility of passages through Jones Sound and Lancaster Sound, by which the North-West Passage was eventually, over two and a half centuries later, to be traversed." (Cumming p. 229) Phillips, Atlases, 485 & 592. Koeman IV Ren 1 & 2. Kershaw 104 & Plate 68. Burden 246 (Seventh State). See Cumming, The Discovery Of North America, p. 229 (1636 Hondius).

DELISLE, Joseph Nicolas de [1688-1768] & BUACHE, Philippe [1700-1773].
Carte des Nouvelles Découvertes au Nord de la Mer du Sud, Tant à l'Est de la Siberie et du Kamtchatka, Qu' à l'Ouest de la Nouvelle France. Dressée sur les Mémoires de Mr. Del'Isle Professeur Royal et de l'Académie des Sciences. Philippe Buache de la même Académie Et Présentée à l'Académie, dans son Assemblée publique du 8. Avril 1750. Par Mr. De l'Isle. Publiée sous le Privilége de l'Académie des Sciences.
Paris: [1752]..
18 ½" x 26 ¼" (47 x 66.4 cm). original & modern colour (name in ink, 'C. Kribber', at lower plate mark & ink notes on verso eradicated with minimal show through at upper left, small pinhole at upper centre fold & minor creasing near centre fold). First state of the famous Buache/Delisle map of the northwest coast. Delisle was privy to valuable Russian confidential information as a result of his involvement in the planning of the second Bering expedition. In 1752 he published his memoir and the Carte des Nouvelles Découvertes showing Russian discoveries in the north Pacific. This "...marked the beginning of a controversy which exercised a bizarre influence on the course of exploration along the Pacific coast of North America". (Cumming et al, pp. 225) The map depicts the Russian discoveries in 1723, 1732, and 1741, de Frondat's voyage of 1709, the route of the Galions in 1743, the Water of Wager &c. Delisle and Buache also incorporated information derived from De Fonte's fictitious account: an elaborate system of inland seas and straits, the enormous Sea of the West, and, most importantly, a Northwest Passage from the Pacific to the Atlantic. The map has a broad top border containing the title within a cartouche and engravings of a native of Kamchatka and a North American Indian in the top corners.

St. Petersburg: 1784..
19 3/4 x 26 1/4 inches (50.1 x 66.6 cm). engraving. original outline colour. Müller's Nouvelle Carte ".is one of the most important maps of the northwest coast produced in the eighteenth century and the first to delineate the area with accuracy."(Verner & Stuart-Stubbs). First published in 1754, several editions of the map were published over a thirty year period. The important 1773 revisions, including the revised Alaska outline, were maintained in the 1784 edition. Müller was the supervisor of the Geographic Department of the Akademiya Nauk. His Nouvelle Carte was the first official map to show the Russian discoveries in the North Pacific. "The map illustrates the official Russian viewpoint that not only was the land sighted by the Russians at the farthest east part of the American mainland, but most of the coastline glimpsed on the return voyage, as well as the land seen by Gwosdev in 1732 opposite the eastern tip of Asia." (Cummings et Al p. 255). It includes the tracks of Bering and Chrikov's 1741 exploration routes and Dezhnev's voyage, from the mouth of the Kolyma River eastward and around the Chukotsk Cape.
