A chart of the North Pacific Ocean showing the declinations of the compass from George Louis Leclerc Buffon’s ‘Histoire Naturelle, Generale et Particulaire’ 1749-04. This map appears in the Minereaux volume of 1788. It shows the waters from the Philippines through China, Japan and Korea to Alaska and California.
