Fine copper engraved map of eastern Canada filled with fascinating notations (an area west of Lake Winnipeg is noted "The Climate of this Land is a great deal more temperate than Hudson's Bay"), and several notes concern recent discoveries. Forts, Indian villages and much else of interest. Bit of light offsetting and some light ink marks in an unengraved section, else fine.
