This is a beautiful 1833 first edition example of David F. Burr's map of Canada's Maritime Provinces, including New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island. The map covers all of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island, along with a portion of adjacent Quebec. Identifies various cities, rivers, mountain passes, and an assortment of additional topographical details.
Canadian provinces and territories were under British and French control from the 16th century, until France gave up its claims in the Treaty of Paris in 1763. Canada would remain a collection of British colonies until its confederation in 1867, when the British colonies of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia would become Canadian provinces along with Ontario and Quebec. Although known as the 'Birthplace of Confederation,' Prince Edward Island would only join the confederation in 1873.
According to Ristow, although Burr is credited on the title page, he left this atlas incomplete. He was appointed as topographer to the U.S. Post Office, and of the siin xty-three maps finally included in this atlas, only completed eight. The rest of the maps were then completed by Illman and Pilbrow in Burr's style. This map was ‘Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1833 by Illman and Pilbrow in the Clerk's office of the District Court for the Southern District of New York', but was not published until the atlas was released in 1835. Published by D. S. Stone in Burr's New Universal Atlas.
