Paris: N. de Fer, c.1694. Very Good; . Maps Canada East Quebec Quebec City; Maps City Maps;, According to Kershaw this map was originally published in "Les Forces De L'Europe" "In August 1690, Sir William Phips left Boston to attack and capture Quebec. Previous military success at Port Royal had given the English an excess of confidence, which Phips fully exploited in planning his expedition against Quebec, but which quickly evaporated when the under-equipped force discovered the extent of the defenses at Quebec. The operation was disastrous, and the English struggled back to Boston losing a number of ships on the way. The battle lines of the English fleet and the details of the French defences were recorded by Villenuve in manuscript form, which were subsequently the source of a sequence of printed maps."
