An early map focused on the area surrounding Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada. An inset map offers a more detailed view of the port. The Bedford Basin (noted as "Baye Torrington" on the map) is on the right and McNabs Island (Isle Perrot Cornwallis) is on the left. 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 many parts of the known world. Maps
