Handsome 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. The large decorative cartouche, featuring a fierce beaver, makes for a very attractive map. Third state, with the boundaries of the province of Quebec added per the Treaty of Paris, published circa 1768.
