A very nice map based on Jefferys' important map of Canada in 1760 with a realistic interpretation of Lake Winnipeg. It covers from Hudson Bay, through the Great Lakes, to Philadelphia. In the West the St. Charles River flows off the map with a notation, "the length of which is unknown, this is the route the Indians follow coming from the West." Inset of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
