THE BRITISH COLONIES IN NORTH AMERICA FROM THE BEST AUTHORITIES

£265

A nicely rendered map of Canada from William Guthrie's famous geography. William Guthrie (1708-1770) was a historian who came out in 1769 with a General View of Geography. This work proved very popular and he soon revised the work, adding maps. "Guthrie's Geography" went through many different editions, well past his death, with editions to as late as 1842. Later editions were regularly updated and expanded, with new discoveries and maps added. This map first appeared in 1785 .Guthrie's map of Canada was one of the first to show information from Samuel Hearne's exploration. It depicts lakes, rivers, orography, the location of Indian tribes, and various notes such as "Fort St. Charles Destoy'd" and "The Climate of this Land is a great deal more temperate than Hudsons Bay."
