Description:

Copper-engraved map, period hand colouring in outline. Inset of "The Harbour of Annapolis Royal by Nathaniel Blackmore Esqr" An attractive map of the Bay of Fundy by one of the greatest cartographers of the eighteenth-century. This elegant composition was published as part of Moll's Atlas Minor, and charts the majority of the bay, with the New Brunswick coast at the top and Nova Scotia at the lower margin. As the title notes, this map includes a great deal of useful information: soundings, rocks, harbours, etc.: all of which is vital in an area where huge tides were the norm and rocks and sandbars make it one of the more dangerous places in the world for shipping. The inset of the harbour of Annapolis Royal continues the good work of the main map by including a large number of soundings in addition to depictions of the physical features. The present copy is an example of Kershaw's third state. Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada III: 763 ; Phillips, A List of Maps of America , p. 578 and p. 585. Bookseller Inventory #
