‘Bhering’s Straits with the adjacent coasts of Asia and America.’

A map created by J. Fraser and Alexander Kincaid, and published in London in 1790. The Straits are named after Vitus Bering (1681-1741), a Danish cartographer and explorer, who served in the Russian Navy, and led the First Kamchatka Expedition (1726-28), which established that there was clear sea between Asia and America. On this map, present-day California is shown as New Albion, and Manitoba (Canada) as New South Wales.
