Notes:

Map of “New France” (Canada). From the engraving by Benjamin Wright (circa 1608).

“No maps [...] were better engraved or more individual in decorative embellishment than those of Benjamin Wright, whose Canada—or as it was then called, New France—with an inset picture of whale-fishing, is given on page 114 as a characteristic example of the geographic engraving of the period. (p. 109)”

I have made a larger version of this antique map available than usual; I scanned the reproduction at 1200dpi. Please don’t link to the largest version of the image, though!
