Title : Description de la Nouvelle France ou sont remarquees les diverse habitations des Francois, depuis la premiere descouvert jusques a present, recueillie et dressee sur diverses relations modernes.
Map maker : BOISSEAU, J..
Date : Paris, 1643.
Size : 13.8 x 21.4 inches. / 35.0 x 54.3 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :VERY RARE FIRST STATE, a second state was issued circa 1664. In superb condition. Important GREAT LAKES map first issued in 1643. According to Burden it is actually the first printed map to show and name all five lakes, pre-dating the Sanson map of 1650. The map is based on Champlain's map of 1632 improved to incorporate names.
There are a number of place names, and names of Indian tribes added, some from Champlain's printed legend, but others from an unknown source." (Kershaw)"
Although the configuration and size of the lakes are incorrect, the map is of seminal importance to the cartography of the region. "Lac St. Louis" (Lake Ontario) leads into "Lac Derie" (Lake Erie) which is shown very small because Champlain, relying on second-hand knowledge, greatly underestimated its size. "Mer Douce ou Lac" (Lake Huron) and "Grand Lac" (Lake Superior) are much more recognizable. Lake Michigan is again confused and represented either by a small lake to the northeast named "Lac des Puans" (the same name used by Sanson) or an inlet in the south of Lake Superior called "Grande Riviere qui vient du midy". ¤

The map is in original out line colour with intriguing red dots and many annotations in brown ink in a contemporary hand. New York has a red dot and "N. Amsterdam" and "Hollandais" in brown ink added. Also "Virginia" and "Anglais" and "Nau. Plimouth" are added in manuscript among others.


Condition : In mint condition. Very wide margins, overall fine with a crisp impression.
