This is a good 1834 first edition example of David F. Burr's map of Lower Canada. Centered on the St. Lawrence River, it covers part of Quebec or Lower Canada including the District of 3 Rivers (a primarily French administrative region in Quebec established in the 18th century) and District of Montreal. Throughout, various cities, rivers, mountain passes, and an assortment of additional topographical details are noted.
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. In 1791, under the Constitutional Act, the Province of Quebec was divided into Upper and Lower Canada, until in 1841, it Lower Canada was united into the Province of Canada. Canada would remain a collection of British colonies until its confederation in 1867, when the British Province of Canada was divided into Quebec and Ontario and the British colonies of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia incorporated as Canadian provinces.
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 1834 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.
