Lovely map depicting Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and the entire course of the St. Lawrence River and a very large inset of the 1744 Bellin version of the Great Lakes. The large decorative cartouche features a rather fierce-looking beaver below the title. This is the third state published circa 1768 with the addition of the boundaries of Quebec according to the Treaty of 1763.
