First state of this fascinating plat map of the island improved from the original survey by Samuel Holland. The island is here divided into fourteen parishes containing 67 numbered parcels. Tables note the acreage of each lot by parish and list the proprietors by number. The relative location of St. John is shown on a decorative inset map of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
