This detailed map of the St. Lawrence River was designed as an inset map for D'Anville's Canada Louisiane et Terres Angloises. It was also published with a 24-page pamphlet entitled "Memoire sur la carte intitulee: Canada, Louisiane, & Terres Angloises." The map includes superb detail of the river from Lake Ontario to Isle aux Coudres, including the Rivier de Richelieu.
