Saint John : NBM Publications MNB, 1987. Pp -154,(2). Il lustrated. Oblong 8vo, white card covers. Bilingual text. "Of the many theatres in which the drama of European imperial ambitions has been played, theAtlantic Seaboard of Canada was the stage for one of the most protracted p erformances. The route to the east sought by explorers who travelled along Canada's Atlantic coast was slowly supplanted as a motive for European interest in the region. The evolution of imperial designs on the region is revealed graphically in the sequence of maps in this book. This evidence of therelationship of mankind with the environment of maritime Canada provides a n extraordinarily sharp picture of a myriad of historic events and economicdevelopments. These maps are essential documents for the re-creation of Ca nada's past." - from the rear cover. Vg. 40.00
