Description


This is an unusual ethnographic manuscript map of Canada dating to about 1871. The map covers all of modern Canada from the Great Lakes to the Arctic and from Atlantic to Pacific. The map identifies some 35 American Indian nations throughout Canada as well as census information based upon the c. 1871 Census of Canada. Among the tribes identified are the Haida, Sioux, Algonquin, Assiniboine, Manitoba, among many others.

All text is in German. The map bears two library stamps suggesting that it must have been deaccessioned from a German Jesuit library, but we have not been able to isolate the specific institution.

Condition


Good. Even toning. A few minor pinholes.
