Grund Riss de Americanischen insuln Cape Breton, St. Jean und Anticosti im Flusse S. Laurencii
Plan of the American islands of Cape Breton, St. John and Anticosti in the St. Lawrence River
Gabriel Nicolaus Raspe
The Anticosti map is included as an inset, presumably so all three islands could be included on the one map.
In the absence of a scale bar or graticule, the scale was calculated using two points on Cape Breton. This may be inaccurate as the entire map is quite poor, geographically speaking, for its time.
