Description

Interesting map of the Great Lakes and Canada, from a German edition of Isaac Weld's Travels Through the States of North America During the Years 1795-97, first published in London in 1798.

The map extends from the St. Lawrence to Lake Winnipeg, centered on Lake Huron. Detroit is named, as is Green Bay. The map shows a fort at the base of Green Bay, this would appear to be Fort Howard, dating the map to roughly the War of 1812.

The map focuses primarily on the lakes and rivers of Canada.
