Champlain : the birth of French America by Raymonde Litalien( )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel de Champlain is one of Canada's most significant historical figures. Both tenacious and knowledgeable, he sustained the fledgling settlement at Quebec, orchestrated alliances with Aboriginal groups, explored and mapped much of Atlantic Canada and the St. Lawrence Valley, and struggled to gain support for New France." "In Champlain: The Birth of French America historians, ethnologists, archaeologists, archivists, and researchers from France, Italy, and Canada revisit Champlain's enormous contributions and unique role in history, offering new insights and raising new questions about the "father of New France." Illustrated, including the thirty-two maps attributed to Champlain as well as documents, a selection of his drawings, and illustrations of rare artifacts, Champlain is a source of information for anyone who wants to understand New France and the origins of Canada."--Jacket
Mapping a continent : historical atlas of North America, 1492-1814 by R Litalien( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 1493, Christopher Columbus returned from a long voyage to the west, convinced he had reached India. In truth, an immense continent, then absent from any map, had blocked his path. A formidable barrier separating Europe from Asia, North America became a coveted land, attracting sailors, missionaries, trappers, soldiers and scientists. For three centuries, motivated by the goal of finding a nautical route to the Pacific Ocean and from there the Orient, European explorers surveyed and mapped the large territory, exploring every body of water, from the tiniest bays to the greatest rivers, and pushing deeper into the interior. Three hundred years almost to the day after Columbus's first voyage, Alexander Mackenzie reached the Pacific Ocean "from Canada, by land, 22 July 1793." In 1805, spurred on by Jefferson, the Lewis and Clark expedition crossed the continent from the Missouri-Mississippi delta to where the Columbia River flows into the Pacific Ocean. The continent's measure had been taken. - Publisher

Mapping a continent : historical atlas of North America, 1492-1814 by Raymonde Litalien( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 1493, Christopher Columbus returned from a long voyage to the west, convinced he had reached India. In truth, an immense continent, then absent from any map, had blocked his path. A formidable barrier separating Europe from Asia, North America became a coveted land, attracting sailors, missionaries, trappers, soldiers and scientists. Seeking not only the Vermilion Sea but also fish, beavers, and precious metals, they crossed rivers and trekked through portages, forests, and mountains. With the help of "Indians" they unlocked the secrets of this terra incognita. Art, scientific papers, and maps provide essential witness to this quest for knowledge that allowed Columbus, Auchagac, Champlain, Franquelin, Thomspon, Mackenzie, and Lewis and Clark to take the measure of America.For three centuries, motivated by the goal of finding a nautical route to the Pacific Ocean and from there the Orient, European explorers surveyed and mapped the large territory, exploring every body of water, from the tiniest bays to the greatest rivers, and pushing deeper into the interior.

La mesure d'un continent : Atlas historique de l'Amérique du nord, 1492-1814 by Raymonde Litalien( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En mars 1493, Christophe Colomb rentre d?un long voyage vers l?Ouest. Il est persuadé d?avoir atteint les Indes. Il a rencontré des Indiens, mais non le Grand Khan de Marco Polo. Ce sera pour la prochaine fois, croit-il. En réalité, Colomb a frappé, sans en prendre conscience, un obstacle de taille sous la forme d?un immense continent auquel des cartographes français donneront par erreur le nom d?America. C?est le début d?innombrables explorations. La parole est à ceux, Blancs et Indiens, qui ont marché (eh oui!), exploré et cartographié l?Amérique de 1492 à 1814. œuvres d?art, œuvres de science, les cartes géographiques sont d?irremplaçables témoins de cette quête de savoir qui a permis aux Champlain, Franquelin, Mackenzie, Thompson, Lewis et Clark de prendre la mesure d?un continent, l?Amérique. Cet atlas compte 300 pages entièrement en couleurs et accueille 200 cartes et illustrations provenant de plus de 20 institutions réputées. Un index très développé, mettant l?accent sur la présence autochtone, les grandes explorations et la toponymie, complète l?ouvrage. Réalisé en collaboration avec Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec et avec la participation de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, ce superbe ouvrage de collection et de référence offre au public une histoire originale de l?Amérique du Nord. Il est l?occasion de souligner les 400 ans de Québec, jadis capitale d?un empire. (par Denis Vaugeois)" [lelibraire.org]
