This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of Canada that you might want to check out.

Looks like someone sent Bockoune to Cape Breton [gmap] to make a map, but what he really liked doing was drawing ships.

To each his own, man -- and the ships are more than lovely -- but didn't they have notebooks to scribble on back then?
