Textual content on verso from page "276" of "De l'Amerique" under heading, "De Quebec, Ville principale du Canada." Described in Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada, Vol. I, entry 267, pp. 241, 242: "Mallet published his miniature atlas in 1683 with several maps that relate to Canada... This map of Canada seems largely to be derived from Sanson, with the Great Lakes left open at their western end." Described in Catalogue of the National Map Collection, Public Archives of Canada, B/900-[1683], Volume 10, p. 313: "L'Est de l'Amérique du Nord, du Groenland à la Floride. On nomme les différentes colonies, quelques villes, les territoires amérindiens, les monts 'Des Neiges' au Nouveau Québec. Le nord du Groenland est lié aux 'Terres Arctiques inconnues'. Malgré la date de publication, la carte indique encore la Nouvelle-Amsterdam et la Nouvelle-Suède. Dans le livre ou se troube cette carte, Mallet assimile Canada et Nouvelle-France, mais plus loin il restreint l'appellation 'Canada' au Labrador méridional en disant que sa ville principale en est Brest, tel qu'indiqué sur la carte, alors que Québec est le chef-lieu de la Nouvelle-France. Le carte est dans Description de l'Univers contenant les differents systemes du monde... d'Allain Manesson Mallet, Paris, D. Thierry, 1683, tome 5, p. 273 et 275. La planche est publieé deux fois dans le livre, l'une figure CXVIII, l'autre, figure CXIX. Elles sont identiques mais l'une fut imprimée le haut en bas, étant à l'envers par rapport au titre de la même feuille. L'une parait page 273, l'autre, page 275. Mais à l'intérieur du cadre elles portent toutes deux '273' et '275'." McMaster's copy is of page 275.

Carta geografica del Canada nell' America Settentrionale
Printed map. Visual scale [50 mm=300 scala di miglia Italiane]. Includes Italian text and illustrations. Originally published in Albrizzi's Atlante Novissimo, published 1750. Described in Catalogue of the National Map Collection, Public Archives of Canada, H12/900-[1750], 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. Acquired as part of the Banks Collection.

Le Canada ou partie de la Nouvelle France, contenant la terre de Labrador la Nouvelle France
Printed map. Six visual scales. Described in Catalogue of the National Map Collection, Public Archives of Canada, V1/900-[1700], H2/900-[1700], H3/900-[1700], Volume 10, p. 319: "It is difficult to give an exact date for the map as it appeared in at least two atlases published by Mortier circa 1700. The map appeared in late editions of Mortier's Suite du Neptune francais ou atlas nouveau des cartes marines and in his Atlas Nouveau of 1708. Consequently, the map is best assigned the date circa 1700. As Hubert Jaillot and Pierre Mortier were joint publishers, it is not surprising that Mortier drew heavily upon Jaillot's map 'Partie de la Nouvelle France' which was first published in 1685."
