1852 Levasseur Map of Guyana, Miquelon, Newfoundland, and St. Martin - Geographicus - GuyaneMiquelon-levasseur-1852

This is an 1852 Levasseur map of the French Colonies in America, including French Guyana, Newfoundland (not a French colony in 1852, still a British colonish and not then part of Canada), Miquelon and St. Pierre, and St. Martin. Miquelon and St. Pierre are located near Newfoundland, St. Martin is an resort island in the Lesser Antilles near Porto Rico, and French Guyana is part of mainland South America. All three colonies are still administered by France. The map proper is surrounded by elaborate decorative engravings designed to illustrate both the natural beauty and trade richness of the land. There is a short textual history of the region depicted to the left and right of the map. Published by V. Levasseur in the 1852 edition of his Atlas National de la France Illustree.
