Described in Catalogue of the National Map Collection, Public Archives of Canada, H12/900-, Vol. 10, p. 338: "An interesting and rare map of Canada as it was known circa 1708. Shown on the map are all the major land forms and water bodies known at the time. Most of the fictitious physical features, commonly held to exist in the early 18th century, are also indicated. The map is based directly on Guillaume De L'Isle's 1708 revision of his 1703 map of Canada . This map, however, has the title, legends and place names translated to Italian. G. Albrizzi, a Venetian map publisher, published the map in 1750 in his De L'Isle atlas entitled Atlante Novissimo. The map appeared as plate 40 in volume 2." Described in Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada, Vol. II, entry 342, p. 18; attributed to Del'Isle-Albrizzi.
