Carte Particuliere du Fleuve Saint Louis...
Paris, ca. 1740
Chatelain's map of the area around the Saint Louis River, published in his Atlas Historique et Méthodique (1705-1739), focuses on the Great Lakes region of North America and Canada. Early settlements of English, French, and Indians, as well as forts and Indian settlements "destroyed by the Iroquois" are identified by a legend of symbols in the upper right. The map is surrounded by French text panels that list information about the Indian nations, flora and fauna in the region, as well as a list of popular trade goods.
