Four Bellin maps of Scandinavian regions on two sheets from the atlas volume of Prevost d'Exiles' Histoire Generale des Voyages. The top sheet includes a map of the Norwegian Arctic Ocean island of Jan Mayen and another of the southern part of the Gulf of Bothnia between Sweden and modern-day Finland, with major cities on both sides—Stockholm, Uppsala, Åbo (today, Turku, Finland)—highlighted in red. On the second sheet are maps of the northern part of the Gulf of Bothnia (derived, like the previous Gulf of Bothnia map, from Swedish charts) and a highly detailed map of the environs of Tournea, today's Tornio, located on the northern tip of the Gulf of Bothnia in Lapland, Finland.
