This small and uncommon map of Newfoundland gives good detail of the coastline with little detail in the interior. The map was based on the work of Nicolas Bellin, with improvements to the shape of the coastlines. The map extends to show the tip of Cape Breton Island and Quebec and Labrador on the mainland, with numerous place names along the coasts. Not in Kershaw.
