A fine early map centered on Fortune Bay, which is located off the southern coast of Newfoundland, Canada. At the bottom left are the three islands of St. Pierre et Miquelon. The other islands shown dotting Newfoundland's coast are "Isles Sanguines," "Isle Chambers," "Isle St. Jean," "Isle Sagone" and "Isles de la Meline ou Isles a l'Ane." Chapeau Rouge, a coastal landmark in Placentia Bay, is also shown at the bottom right. This map appeared in Bellin's "Le Petit Atlas Maritime, ou Recueil de Cartes et de Plans des Quatre Parties du Monde". This atlas or pilot is a wonderful French produced small sized work that depicted a great many parts of the known world. Maps
