Jean Lattre was the publisher of this edition, he may also have been this maps engraver. With maps by Bonne, Jean Janvier and Rizzi-Zannoni. Cartographer:Rigobert Bonne (17271795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine.Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonnes work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.

He is also known to have worked with other European cartographers such as William Faden of London and the Italian cartographer Santini.

A magnificent sea called the Sea of the West or in this case the'Baye de L'Ouest,' occupies the greater part of the northwestern part of the continent. This body of water, alternatively called the Sea of the West or Mer de l'Ouest, was speculated by Philippe Buache and Guillaume De l'Isle in the early 18th century based upon wishful thinking, American Indian stories, and the somewhat questionable 16th century explorations of Juan de Fuca. Janvier gives the Mer de l'Ouest its fullest expression, though he specifically does not connect it to either the network of lakes and rivers extending westward from the Hudson Bay or to the similar network extending westward from Lake Superior.
