A detailed map of the region between Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River to Quebec. The map extends to Lake Champlain and Lake George, as well as Lake Nepessing in Michigan, with numerous portages named on the interconnecting waterways. There are a number of forts named, including Ft. Toronto, Ft. Oswego, and Ft. Georges. A deftly engraved cartouche surrounds the title. This is a Dutch variant state not found in Kershaw.
