Plan de la Cataracte de Niagara et de l'Isthme qui separe les Lacs Erie et Ontario

By: Pierre Francois Tardieu

Date: 1801 (published) France

Dimensions: 8 x 17.25 inches (20.25 x 44 cm)

This map depicts Lake Ontario and Lake Erie and the Niagara River linking them, including the spectacular cataract of Niagara Falls. It was published to accompany the book Voyage dabs le Haute Pennsylvanie et dans l’Etat de New York, by Saint Jean de Crevecours.

The work is little known but provides some of the earliest information available regarding indigenous tribes living in the region of the two lakes. In addition to the falls, the map identifies Fort Erie, Fort Niagara, Fort Chippaway and the Grand Isle. Ships at full sail embellish both lakes. 

Condition: This map is in B+ condition with a small separation at a fold intersection (lower center) and some faint toning along some folds. Map lays flat with full margins on all sides.
