1755 London Magazine
A Map of the Five Great Lakes, with Part of Pensilvania, New York, Canada and Hudson's Bay Territories &c.
Interesting map of the Great Lakes region, extending west to the Upper Mississippi Valley and Lake Missisagan or Buade and to James Bay, showing the region at the start of the French & Indian War.
Many Indian tribes named and some early French forts in Illinois and Indiana, including Ft. Sakis, St Francis Xavier Fort, Fort of the Miamis, St Ionace Fort, Fort Pontchetrain, Ft St. Joseph, Ft. Sandoski, le Rocher Fort, and others. While the map was published in London, its source is an amalgam of French and English data, most notably Bellin's map of the Great Lakes and Mitchell's map of North America.
