Map of New France?

Hey there!

I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good, large-size map or facsimile of a map of New France sometime right before the French & Indian/Seven Years War?

I have found some on the internet, but they weren't great and most of them were very small files. Figured I'd ask to see if any of you have come across one.

I'm volunteering to make a coloring book for an historical association, and this would be an amazing resource.

Thanks!

- Jac

That's a nice map of New France most look pretty child like compared to those of British Map Makers like: Captain James Cook & David Thompson.
The British Map Makers made maps of such high quality that some were only recently replaced by satellite imagery.
Here is a virtual history of New France. http://www.historymuseum.ca/virtual-.../introduction/
In it they show some of the routes taken by some of the early French Explorers.
We can see a definite change in the quality of map making skills & tools during this time period.
Hope this is a good addition & thanks for the resource revwarheart.
Regards, Patrick
