Historical Context: This hand-colored map of the Canadian Maritimes features a cartouche engraved and signed by Catherine Haussard. The design is conventional, with common symbols for North America: pine trees, a Native American canoe, and a beaver. The listing of hundreds of Native American villages in Canada provides an invaluable visual and historical record of tribal locations that would soon disappear from maps of the region.
