Voyages Of Samuel de Champlain

Voyages Of Samuel de Champlain | Map or Atlas | Wisconsin Historical Society
The Wisconsin portion of Champlain's 1632 map, augmented since the previous one, for navigation according to the true Meridien, by Sieur de Champlain. The western portion of the map is based on verbal reports by Champlain's protege Etienn Brule, the only European thought to have visited the western Great lakes before Jean Nicolet in 1634. However Brule had died by 1632 and Champlain had never personally traveled to the far west, so the cartographer erroneously put Green Bay (the Bay of Puants) north of Sault Ste. Marie, rather than south of it. Ca. 1880 facsimile of the original 1632 map.
