Copper-engraving handcolored in outline, when published. Printed around 1693 by Hubert Jaillot in Paris, published in his great atlas the 'Atlas Noveau ...'. Large and decorative map of Canada by the French cartographer Nicolaus Sanson and Hubert Jaillot. Published in the 'Atlas Noveau ...', this atlas was a masterpiece in the French cartography in the 17th century. The atlas was specially designed for Louis XIV and due of the very large size of the plates, most maps were printed from two plates, it took Hubert Jaillot over 12 years to complete the 'Atlas Noveau ...'. Canada is very detailled shown on the map, as well Labrador, Terra Neuf & Nouvelle France are shown in engraved territory borders.
