|Description||Two notebooks compiled by Henry Harrisse in 1899, containing 161 stereotype proofs of maps to be used as illustrations for Découverte et évolution cartographique de Terre Neuve et des pays circonvoisins 1497-1501-1769: essais de géographie historique et documentaire (Paris: H. Welter, 1900). Maps document how the Europeans’ conception of the New World, Newfoundland and New France (Canada) in particular, changed cartographically over a period of 300 years of discoveries and explorations. Black and white proofs, generally mounted several to a page, and unmounted proofs tipped in (volume 1 contains eight of these tipped in; volume 2 includes one), are labelled and numbered in pencil, and include Harrisse’s notes on additions and deletions. There is also a manuscript map of early Canada drawn by Harrisse, affixed to the inside front cover of volume 1.|
