MAP005 "Carte de la nouvelle france..." par Samuel de Champlain, Paris, 1632.

Samuel de Champlain's final map stands out among the early maps of Canada as a magnificent compilation of geographic information about New France as it was known in 1629, the year the French were expelled from the St. Lawrence Rvier Valley by British Privateers. If you wish to see this map in miniature form, it is on the back of the Canadian $100 Dollar Bill.

MAP001 "CARTE DE LA NOUVELLE FRANCE ou se voit le cours des Grandes Rivieres de S.LAURENS & de MISSISSIPPI Aujour d'hui S.LOUIS Chatelain, 1719

This map was copied and reduced by Chatelain from a larger map by Nicolas de Fer. The smaller map made a more effective promotional piece for the Companil Francoise Occident which was responsible for the Louisiana Territory. The two inserts of this map show (1) the urban layout of Quebec City and (2) forts and coast line at the mouth of the Mississippi. It is really a fascinating map of North America.

MAP002 "Carte Des Cinq Grands Lac du Canada" par Jacques Nicholas Bellin, Paris, 1764 (Map of the Five Canadian Great Lakes)

By the mid-18th century Bellin had become a leading geographical engineer of Paris and Versailles. First official hydrographic engineer attached to the French office of marine maps and plans, he produced in 1764 a maritime atlas containing this map showing the topography, forts, portages and the Mission Ste. Marie in the Great Lakes area. While published in 1764, the details place its execution to the early 1750s.

MAP003 "Carte Particuliere du Fleuve Saint Louis Dressee sur les Lieux..." par H.A. Chatelain, Paris, 1719.

Despite its anachronisms, this "natural history" map contains in the lists around its margin much useful historical information. It is based on less accurate cartographical information than the other 1719 map from the same atlas, and uses the old French name for the Mississippi (the Saint Louis), in the title , but not on the map. The area shown is mainly Canada, however, and it is of interest from the points of view of the fur trade, natural history, native peoples, and French language.

MAP004 "Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France...." par H.A. Chatelain, Paris, 1719.

With a few minor changes, this map is based almost exactly on Guillaume De L'Isle's famous map of 1703 of approximately the same title. The major difference is that, in place of the elaborate cartouche and title block on the De L'Isle map, this one substitutes "Remarque Historique", an account of early French exploration in North America.

MAP006 " A New and Exact Map of the Dominions of the King of Great Britain on ye Continent of North America" by Herman Moll, London, 1715, revised 1732 or later.

This map, aptly called the "Beaver Map" popularized Canada's national emblem with the "View of ye Industry of ye Beavers of Canada in making Dams". All the American colonies are detailed on this map including an insert of "improved part" of Carolina along with the layout of Charlestown.

MAP007 "Partie Orientale de la Nouvelle France ou du Canada", Tobias Conrad Lotter, 1762.

This map is typical of the German school of thought towards map making with its ornate artwork and engraving. It is particularly interesting to the navigator because of the detailing of the flow of the rivers and the surprising accuracy of the inlets, etc. considering distorted interpretation of the land masses. Overall Print Size with White Border and Title: 16" X 20" ( 40.6 cm X 50.8cm) Size of Image: 15" X 17 3/4" (38 cm X 45 cm).
