Sheet 88 of 115 numbered leaves in the Cartes Marines Manuscript Map Collection, detailing French colonial interests worldwide. Compiled c.1640-c.1726, probably under the direction of prominent members of the Besenval family, who served as high military officers and diplomats for the French crown, the maps detail French colonial interests in the style of military and naval cartographers. Most sheets are anonymous and undated. Bound together in 1727 as an atlas comprised of 117 numbered leaves; maps later disbound and mounted on cloth. All sheets are drawn with pen-and-ink and watercolour; most were previously folded. Each leaf catalogued individually.
Oriented with north at right.
Derived from unsigned woodcut by John Foster, 'A Map of New-England, being the first that ever was here cut'. Issued in William Hubbard, A Narrative of the troubles with the Indians (Boston: printed by John Foster, 1677).
