Title:
Carte reduite des costes orientales de l'Amerique septentrionale : 1re. feuille contenant L'Isle Royale, L'Accadie, La Baye Françoise, La Nouvelle Angleterre et La Nouvelle Yorc
Description:
One of a series of French nautical charts covering the eastern coast of North America, this sheet covers the coast lines of New York, New England, Bay of Fundy, and Nova Scotia. The chart's only inset depicts Boston Bay and Harbor. This and other similar French charts were sold separately by the Depot de la Marine in Paris, but they were also bound into various editions of the two-volume Hydrographie françoise, published during the last half of the 19th century. Hydrographie françoise was a large composite atlas of charts compiled by Bellin, France's royal hydrographer.
