BOWLES, John. [Bering's mapping of the North Pacific and Alaska]
Bowles's New Pocket Map of the Discoveries made by the Russians on the North West Coast of America. Published by the Royal Academy of Sciences at Petersburg. London: Bowles & Carver, c.1795. Original colour. 460 x 620mm. Centrefold repaired, margin chipped top right.
A chart showing the tracks of the Russian explorers Bering and Tschirikov around the North Pacific, with their landfalls in Alaska. As the chart was originally published c.1765, it predates the discoveries of Captain James Cook, so there is still a suggestion of a North West Passage to Hudson's Bay via a 'River of the West'.
