    A very attractive well engraved map of the five lakes. The map is typical in many ways of maps of the lakes at this time but it sends Lake Michigan quite far south and east giving the Michigan peninsula an odd look. Lake Superior is on the large side and Lake Huron resembles an east-west shaped football. Bellin had been one of the earliest cartographers to include the fictitious Isle Philippeaux on his maps (in 1744) and he is loyal to that island and its friends here. Charming title block in the manner of Bellin.

    Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 7.75 x 11.5 (inches)
