Title : A compilation of 16 engravings taken from : Nouveaux Voyages de Mr. Le Baron de Lahontan, dans l'Amerique Septentrionale . . ..
Map maker : LAHONTAN, [Louis Armand de Lom d\'Arce], Baron de.
Date : Paris, Freres l'Honore, 1703.
Size : 15.9 x 16.5 inches. / 40.5 x 42.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :16 plates and maps with a title in manuscript in upper margin. The plates are quite detailed, if speculative, depicting Indians in many aspects, their clothing, accouterments, weapons, pipes, etc.
In upper left a small map of Canada's East cost and a profile view of Quebec.
Lahontan spent twenty years in Canada fighting the Iroquois and traveling about, and exploring along the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers. Forced into exile for his unsympathetic accounts of the civil and ecclesiastical administration of Canada,
Lahonton is today best remembered not for the value of the accounts of his explorations, but for his inserting an account of a pretended trip west of the Mississippi which he undoubtedly could not have made.
Streeter notes that "Lahontan's work is devoted almost entirely to the description of Indian life in Canada, and is one of the best early works on the subjects."
Condition : Each print cut on neat line and contemp. pasted on a larger sheet of paper. With browning due to oxidation of glue. One print teared and one repair of a small V-shape tear in paper.
