This is a fine print reproduction of an important, intriguing, and uniquely informative map by Henri Abraham Chatelain. It depicts Canada, the Great Lakes, and the path of the Mississippi River and constitutes a remarkable compendium of the best and most recent compilations of its day.
Depicting the locations and territories of various French Missions and Forts, of French and Indian settlements, significant river crossing locations, portages, the map provided essential information to explorers, trappers, to all who had travelled to the New World to reap the bounty afforded by it, particularly the fur-trading industry.
Another salient aspect of Chatelain’s map is the information bordering the cartographic image. With great care Chatelain names and places indigenous peoples of the various regions including those of Canada, the St. Lawrence River, those near Lake Huron, etc., notes the languages spoken by them and their tribal affiliations.
Chatelain enumerates the wide variety of goods available and animals (wild game) to be found, the flora and fauna of this bountiful region are well described. Furthermore, furs and their trade value with different items are catalogued giving the viewer an appreciation of the socio-economic context in which early exploration took place.
