The illustrations are mainly figures of the Indians; but included-a plate that is lacking in many copies-is the engraving of the martyrdom of Fathers Jogues, Lalande, Brebeuf and Lallemand, which, although taking place some three years apart, are represented on the one plate. A stamp on the title shows that originally this copy was in the possession of the College of Lyons.

Fine copy. Lond. 1784 Rare. Pierre Du Calvet was a Canadian Huguenot, who, after the English occupation of the country, was appointed a magistrate in Montreal. The disbarring from office of those of his compatriots on account of their religion roused from him vigorous protests. This led to violent quarrels with the Governor and his party, and especially against Sir Frederick Haldimand personally. To further his ideas he made several voyages to England, and prosecuted Sir Frederick Haldimand for breaches of the constitutional law, and this latter had Du Calvet thrown into prison on an accusation of treason, an imprisonment which lasted over two years. On his last voyage to England the ship was lost at sea.
