This attractive and detailed map focuses on the region surrounding the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The coasts are lined with place names, and the map delineates the major fishing banks in the Atlantic. It includes some notations, including a couple describing the division of lands between the French and English according to the Treaty of Utrecht (1713). Engraved by John Gibson and published in Andrew Millar’s American Gazetteer.
A nice impression issued folding on watermarked paper with light toning mainly along the sheet edges. The margin at lower right has been trimmed to neatline.
