A nicely rendered map of Canada from William Guthrie's famous geography. William Guthrie (1708-1770) was a historian who came out in 1769 with a General View of Geography. This work proved very popular and he soon revised the work, adding maps. "Guthrie's Geography" went through many different editions, well past his death, with editions to as late as 1842. Later editions were regularly updated and expanded, with new discoveries and maps added.
