Isaac Weld, Jr.  “Canadian Calash or Marche Donc.” 

From I. Weld, Jr.  Travels through the states of North America...during 1795, 1796 and 1797.  London: John Stockdale, [1799].  6 ¾ x 9 (image).  Engraving by J.B. Drayton.  Vertical fold as issued.  Fine condition. 

A charming and unusual view from an early scenic history of America.  This print shows with fine detail a method of transportation used in Canada that was no doubt borrowed from earlier French citizens of this area of the United States.  A delightful and early view of upstate New York and its Canadian border.
