Note Printed map. Third edition. Published originally in Ramusio's Navigationi et Viaggi, vol. 3, 1606. Described in Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada 1540-1703, vol. 1, entry 15b, p. 18: "The final edition of the Viaggi appeared in 1606, and the maps are identical to those of the second edition with the exception of the page numbers that have been changed from 424/425 to 353/354. In addition, the Nvova Francia wood-block appears to have been damaged by wood-worm since its last use in 1565, so that elongate oval blank areas appear in the final printed form of the map where the surface of the block has been wormed." Acquired as part of the Banks Collection.
