Antique facsimile of an early map of the east coast of Canada and the north-east US. This version is a lithographic facsimile that was published in 1849 by Pease as a copy of Champlain's original 1612 map. Interesting early mapping of the new world including sketches of the sorts of people and plants found there, and various fish (some quite monstrous looking) in the water. The Maritimes seem to be well understood except for the apparent absence of Prince Edward Island. South of Canada seems to get a bit less reliable. Very interesting and visually appealing map! Very good condition with folds, some minor edge wear, some slight surface soiling. This map is made of two sheets that are joined and backed with linen. Approx. 17 x 30.25 inches to the neatline.
