|Early Exploration of the American Arctic|
London, 1704. Published by Churchill to illustrate the voyage of the Dane Jens Munk, who led a Danish expedition in search of the Northwest Passage in 1619-20, during which he was the first to completely map Hudson Bay. Here the Bay has two names, 'King Christians Sea' and 'The New Sea'; on the west shore is marked 'Monks Winter harbour'. Greenland is shown as a large landmass stretching from America almost to Spitzbergen. The mythical Frobisher's Passage through Greenland and island of Friesland are marked.
