Description: Map. Engraving with original outline coloring. Two sheets joined. Image measures 22 5/8 x 17 inches.

Comments: Nice early edition of Bonne's Eastern part of North America, with the name Canada prominently featured in the center of the Great Lakes. Two separate maps have been professionally joined and line up well to show the region in detail during the beginnings of the American Revolution. Some foxing near the scale but otherwise a good example. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. He served as Hydrographer to France, and during his term, he produced a numbered of detailed and useful maps, particularly of coastal regions. His work is often devoid of decorative cartouches and compasses roses and marks a turn in European mapmaking away from decoration toward technical mapping.

Hello. I ordered a book from you via Abebooks a short while ago; it arrived today. Since one cannot leave feedback there, I wanted to send you a note to thank you for packaging the book so carefully! I know the item wasn't very expensive, but it was a gift for my mother, who was quite thrilled to receive it. Thank you very much for taking the time to be so thorough. Best regards - E. Bell
