This striking map of the Northeast extends from Philadelphia up the coast to Ile d’Anticosti and the mouth of the St. Lawrence, and inland to show part of Lake Ontario. Fine detail, particularly along the Hudson River, locates scores of towns and villages and shows roads, mountains, and watershed. There are four distance scales at upper left and a simple block-style title cartouche. Longitude is measured from Paris on the lower scale and from Isle de Fer at top. Engraved by Tardieu with lettering by Andre and published by Chanlaire & Mentelle.
Very detailed mapping of the St Lawrence river and Nova Scotia.
The Webster-Ashburton Treaty of 1842 settled the border disputes between the USA and the United Kingdom. The treaty awarded the United States seven-twelfths of the disputed territory in Maine and New Brunswick, and also adjusted the Canadian-United States boundary between Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods.
