MAP of the Province of NOVA SCOTIA Including CAPE BRETON, Prince Edwards Island AND PART OF New Brunswick
Charles W. Torbett
Includes a small inset map of Sable Island with the following note: "The N. W. end of the Isle of Sable bears from the Halifax or Sambro Light EbyS 125 miles distant." There are soundings present for most ports, harbours and straits and information on mail routes in the upper right. The outline color marks county and township boundaries and are very different from the present day boundaries. If you look closely there are interesting notes related to geography, navigation and tides. For example, the note over present day Inverness and Victoria counties reads "Land very little known".
