Canada and the Great Lakes, with the mythical Rivière Longue.

Canada Covens, Jean & Mortier, Corneille. Canada Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France..

Amsterdam. Covens et Mortier c1741
Copper engraved map of Canada from Covens & Mortier's " Nieuwe Atlas, Inhoudennde vier Gedeeltens der Waereld.. " Original full wash colour; verso blank.
Black and white strap work title cartouche [as issued].
The influential map after Guillaume De l'Isle shows an accurate depiction, for the time, of the Great Lakes, Eastern Canada and New England; numerous trading posts and missions of New France and the major towns of the adjacent British colonies are labeled.
The map features a number of notes specifically referring to the names of explorers and the dates in which they discovered certain places such as Baffin's Bay, Davis Strait, &c
The area around Hudson Bay is divided into that inhabited by Christinaux or Kilistinonsand Labrador as Eskimaux. Baffins Island is named James Island or Isle de Jacques, whilst Greenland appears possibly to be joined to the continent at the Baye de Tho. Smith.
The depiction of the upper Mississippi and Ohio basins is also quite detailed, noting the position of the French fort of St. Louis or Crevecouer near the present-day site of Peoria, Illinois.
Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the map is the description and portrayal of the Rivière Longue,one of the most sensational and enduring cartographic misconceptions ever devised. This imaginary river was reported to flow from the Pays des Gnacsitares in the far west, promising the best route through the interior of the continent. A short distance over some mountains lies a long salt water lake, that is supposedly connected to the Pacific Ocean. It is a product of the imagination of the Baron Lahontan, an entertaining and roguish French adventurer, whose best-selling travel narrative Nouveaux voyages dans l'Amérique septentrionale(1703) convinced many of the world's greatest intellects of the existence of this mythical waterway. Dark impression; bright full wash colour; printed on heavy paper; light crease near centre fold;old red crayon numbers to verso.
