Karte von der Insel Montreal und den Gegenden Umher nach den Manuscripton der Karten Grundrisse und Tagebucher bey der Marine. 1744.
1756 - Leipzig: Arkstee und Merkus, 1753. 255 x 320mm. A German edition of Bellin's map of Montreal Island compiled from manuscript sources, published in the 'Allegmeine Historie der Reisen zu Wasser und zu Lande'. As the most detailed map of the area it was copied several times for use in illustrating the events of the Seven Years' War (1756-63, also known as the 'French and Indian War'), when the British took the colony from the French. Here Montreal is named 'Stadt Maria', referring to the original plan to dedicate the colony to the Virgin Mary.
