Description:
French copy of an unidentified English map probably compiled in the previous century; most place names in English. Illustrates the competing fur trade claims of Hudson's Bay Company and the Compagnie du Nord; identifies sites associated with the early European exploration of Hudson Bay, particularly the 1682-1683 expedition headed by Pierre Esprit Radisson and Médard Chouart Des Groseilliers. Prominently labels the Nelson River winter camps of Radisson, HBC governor John Bridgar, ship captain Benjamin Gillam, and Sir Thomas Button (Button's expedition wintered there in 1612).
