Lovely map of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and the entire course of the St. Lawrence River. The most prominent feature of the map is the very large inset of the 1744 Bellin version of the Great Lakes, titled "Supplement Pour Les Lacs du Canada." The large decorative cartouche, featuring a fierce beaver, makes for a very attractive map. Fourth state reflecting the boundaries of Quebec per the Treaty of Paris.
