Item is a chart of a harbour showing a point of land with a cross. The chart was published on page thirty of Les voyages du sieur de Champlain Xaintongeois, capitaine ordinaire pour le roy en la marine (Paris: Jean Berjon, 1613). In this volume, Champlain describes the country around Port des mines or present-day Basin of Mines or Minas Basin, Nova Scotia, Canada. The river at the head of the bay is Shubenacadie River, but the location of the cross, which proves, according to the author, that Christians once lived there, is unknown. Champlain drew the original from which the engraving was made. Cartographic elements include soundings, shoals, compass rose, and ship. Chart also includes a waterfall or rapids, a dwelling, a group of First Nations people, and some topographical details. Items in image are lettered for identification in key below.
