Description:
This pair of late-17th-century Dutch maps depicts the French and British colonies in northeastern North America extending from the Carolinas to Newfoundland. The map's central focus includes New England along with the former Dutch colony of New Netherlands and the French settlements along the St. Lawrence River, labeled as New France or Canada. Names of indigenous tribes occupy the unknown interior, while the settled coast has European place names. First published about 1689, this is the last state of the map (published about 1720), which is identified by an inset showing the French fortress of Louisburg on Cape Breton Island.
