Description: Case map. Color lithograph, mounted on linen. Image measures 25.75" x 35.5".
Comments: Illustrates various expeditions of the coasts and interiors of Northern Canada, Greenland and the Northwest Passage. Includes paths of explorers from Hudson (1610-11) to Peary (1892-95 & 1900-02). Map is particularly interesting today, because of the changing landscape: due to recent climate change, the Northern Passage is becoming easier to navigate. In recent years, new islands have emerged from the melted ice and are causing disputes between Russia, Canada, the European Union and the United States, who all hope to stake claim to the new land. Case map, booklet missing. Tear to bottom left margin and wear holes to horizontal centerfold (prior to linen mount).Binding: unbound
