Fine example of this map of the Great Lakes. It shows frontier forts, missions, and fur trade routes. It covers the region from James Bay to just below Ft. Duquesne and from Lake Ontario through the Great Plains. Numerous Indian tribe names and forts, including Detroit, St. Louis, Toronto and "Chicagou". The supposed source of the Mississippi is shown. Final state without Bonne's name in the title.
