Enjoyable and interesting to look at, all but a few of these maps below have links to beautiful high-resolution images. Nearly all of the linked images have been hosted on the internet by me over the past two decades.
I am happy to translate the French on them for active participants.

1674 Marquette Map (19th Century Fake), Printed in J.G.Shea, 1852 link

This photo, taken of the same map as above, was taken in about 1850, and
published in 1852. (The above was taken in about 1900). The Shea is much
more legible on the zoom-in. (Notwithstanding the sides had to be trimmed
for posting purposes).
