An interesting map of the Hudson Bay, with a very decorative cartouche. Bellin was appointed hydrographer (chief cartographer) to the French navy upon the creation of France's hydrographic office, the Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine. As befits a maritime chart, all place names and general information is coastal, and there is no real attempt to engrave anything of note inland of the coastal areas. Over a 50-year career, he produced a large number of maps and charts. The accuracy of Bellin's charts ensured that they were in use for many years.
