Senex, John (1678-1740).
A new Map of America from the latest observations...
Engraved map with original hand color in outline.
London, c. 1719.
20 3/4" x 23 1/4" sheet, 30" x 33" framed.
Unlike most maps of the period, Senex adds a conjectural Northwest Coastline, which includes a number of islands and several lakes, including Aquinonbock, Lake of Isles and the The Great Lake of Thoago or Thoya. On the coastline, Desolation and Zapozipin Bays appear north of 60 degrees. (McLaughlin 193; Tooley 81).
