Map of Eastern Canada with vignettes

TALLIS, John.

East Canada and New Brunswick.
London, J. & F. Tallis., c.1851. Original outline colour. Steel engraving, printed area 260 x 340mm.

A detailed map of eastern Canada, with the St Lawrence River and the cities of Montreal and Quebec, drawn and engraved by John Rapkin and published in John Howard Hinton's 'History of the United States of America, from the Earliest Period to the Present Time'. The map is within an ornate printed border and has vignettes of Quebec, American Indians, a bison and a mink.

Of interest is the reference to 'Madawaska Settlements', an area left in dispute by Britain and the United States after the Treaty of Versailles set the border between the U.S. and Canada. Matters were brought to a head when a US settler, John Baker, attempted to declare the area a republic in 1827. After a failed attempt at arbitration by the King of the Netherlands in 1831 and the non-violent 'Aroostook War' of 1838-9, the matter was included in the Webster-Ashburton Treaty of 1842.
