Guillaume de L'ISLE
Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France et des Decouvertes qui y ont été faistes
Parigi, 1703. Si tratta di una delle più importanti e influenti mappe del Canada pubblicate nel '700. Il lavoro è fondamentale anche per la regione dei Grandi Laghi, che è rappresentata con notevoli correzioni rispetto a tutte le precedenti carte. La mappa, inoltre, include uno dei primi riferimenti alla Montagne Rocciose e alla "Riviere Longue". Incisione in rame, colore originale, rinfrescato, in ottime condizioni. Map of Canada or New France and of discoveries which were made there: based on several observations and on a large number of printed or manuscript accounts by Guillaume de l'Isle of the Royal Academy of Science. Map of North America, from mid Illinois to the top of Canada, Baffin Bay, and Greenland. Of equal note, the map also includes one of the earliest references to the Rocky Mountains, the "Riviere Longue" and other features to the west. Shows coastline, mountains, lakes, rivers, trails, locations of Indian tribes and settlements. Copperplate with original outline colour, refreshed, in very good conditions. 650 500mm
