Notes "Anglo-French rivalry in North America was long established. Quebec had been attacked by the English as early as 1629, and was finally granted to England by 1763 in the Treaty of Paris, signed on 2 February."-John Goss "Jonathan Carver's map of the new Province of Quebec, with the original 1763 boundaries. These boundaries would be extended in 1774 to include much of what is today the United States. The extension was one of the many causes of the American Revolution, and resulted in the loss of much territory to the new country in 1783." (Hayes) An important pre-revolution map of Quebec,with three insets of Montreal, Quebec City and the St. Lawrence river. This map is the product of British colonial interests after having occupied New France--its close attention to detail comes across even in the title cartouche, which illustrates the rocky forested lands of Quebec.
