A Plan of Quebec (1759)

Seven Years' War, 1756-1763

This military plan shows the city of Québec and its fortifications soon after being taken by the British.


The fall of Québec City signaled the decline of French dominance in Canada and the demise of Québec as the centre of the fur trade in North America.


This map was published in London, according to an Act of Parliament in October of 1759 by E. Oakley. It was sold by J. Rocque, near Round Court in the Strand, and donated to the libary by the Bain family in 2008.


Creator: Peter Andrews, 1765-1782
