Antique Map of New England and Northeastern Canada
First edition of Santini's map of Canada, New York and New England based upon D'Anville's seminal map of 1746.
The map utilizes the same cartouche as De Vaugondy's map of Canada, but does not include the large inset map of the Great Lakes.
Paolo Santini (1729-1793) was an Venetian engraver known especially for his religious prints and fine cartographic engravings. He published in Venice and may have a been a member of the clergy. In his maps, he largely adopted and adapted the work of his French counterparts, especially the brothers de Vaugondy.
