Catalogue Note

The print depicted of an extinct Canadian Dove is by Francois Nicolas Martinet, published 1765-83. The map depicted may be a detail from a map of the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding locations by Rigobert Bonne (1727–1795), one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century.
