Although it is not named, the fictitious'Mer de l'Ouest' is shown in North America. The world map depicts a strange North America with a large sea protruding into the western coastline and no Baja Peninsula. On the Americas map North America is shown in the more typical format for the period and a small cartouche covers the West Coast with a note.
