Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France: La Floride, la Virginie, Pensilvanie, Caroline, Nouvelle Angleterre et Nouvelle Yorck, l'Isle de Terre Neuve, la Louisiane, et le Cours de la Riviere de Misisipi | Map or Atlas | Wisconsin Historical Society
Map of America east of the Mississippi River showing boundaries, rivers, portages, forts, cities, villages, and Native American land. Annotations on early explorations, forts, rivers, and Indian tribes appear throughout the work. The Mississippi extends due north from Texas up to "Lac des Sioux" far north of Lake Superior. The placement of the boundaries of European claims clearly demonstrate de Fer's political affiliation, as the French territory extends much further south forcing the British colonies to hug the coast. A large block of text sits below the map and describes the various territories.
