Lande 113 for the 1606 edition. cf. Gagnon I-747, for 1608 "Chronologie novenaire,." A rare and important work, containing one of the first accounts of Champlain's first voyage to North America. The work consists of a chronological arrangement of important events from 1598 to 1604, divided into 7 Books or parts of about 140 foliated pages each. In Book 6, for the year 1603, occupying folios 377-433, is a long detailed account of the French Expedition to Canada organized by Amyar de Chastres, Governor Dieppe, and commanded by the Sieurs Du Pont Grave and Prevert, accompanied by Samuel De Champlain. The expedition left Honfleur on March 15th, 1603, and after a tempestuous voyage of forty days, reached Tadoussac. From this point Champlain explored the Saguenay for about 30 or 40 miles, and then the St. Lawrence as far as the Falls above the present site of Montreal. Returning to Tadoussac he explored the shores of the Gulf, secured a valuable cargo of furs, and returned to France, which he reached on September 20th, 1603. This is one of the earliest accounts of Champlain's First Voyage to Nouvelle France, being a succinct abridgement in the third person of Champlain's "Des Sauvages ou Voyage de Samuel Champlain de Brovage". which was published in Paris in 1603 immediately after the return of the expedition. Book 7, for the year 1604, contains a long account of the foundation of the Jesuit College in Paris and of the activities of the Order in Europe, Peru, New Grenada, the Philippine Islands, China, and Japan, in addition to a further account of the French in Canada.
