"The last of the eight maps relating to North America in Wytfliet s first atlas of the New World. It is the first to use Canada in its title, and the first to concentrate on the river and Gulf of St. Lawrence. It summarises sixteenth-century knowledge of the area just prior to the expansion of France, and voyages of Samuel de Champlain. The general outline is derived largely from Gerard Mercator, with additional information gleaned from other sources" (Burden).
