J. Stockdale. "A Plan of the City of Quebec". From I. Weld, Jr.'s Travels through the States of North America...during 1795, 1796 and 1797.
London: J. Stockdale, 1798. 6 1/2 x 9 1/4 (neatlines). Engraving. Slight transferring. Folds as issued. Good condition.
A clear and interesting map of Quebec issued near the end of the eighteenth century. The map was published in Isaac Weld's work describing his travels through North America between 1795 and 1797. This map focuses on the scene of General Wolfe's great victory at the end of the French and Indian War. Quebec has always been scenic, and those with interests in the region had every reason to believe that it would be of central interest in any forthcoming clash between Great Britain and the United States. An early English map focusing just on Quebec and with a lovely engraved title cartouche.
