A new map of the province of lower Canada, describing all the seigneuries, townships, grants of land, &c.
Printed map. "By Samuel Holland, esqr. surveyor general", "Published by James Wyld, geographer to her majesty." Second Edition. The differences between the third, 1835 state and the 1838 state are minor. In the imprint on the fourth state "Geographer to His Majesty" is changed to "Geographer to Her Majesty". The third state shows either the American or British claim to the boundary, whereas the 1838 state shows both claims. In addition, the boundary as determined by the King of Holland is also shown; however, it has not been coloured as have the other two. His decision concerning a boundary was rejected by the United States. Described in Catalogue of the National Map Collection... S/300-1838, Volume 2, p.148: "This copy of Holland's important map of Lower Canada is the fourth state of the second edition. The first edition of the map was first published in 1802. As a result of the map's accuracy it was used extensively in the dispute concerning Canada's north-eastern boundary with the United States. Between 1802 and 1846, no less than eight revisions of the map appeared.
