Early Narratives of the Northwest, 1634-1699

By Louise Phelps Kellogg | Go to book overview

NOTE

THE first of the illustrations in this volume is a facsimile of a page of the manuscript of Radisson's journal, photographed from the original in the Bodleian Library at Oxford (Rawlinson, A. 329). The photograph used is in the possession of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, which has kindly lent it for the purposes of the present reproduction.

We are also indebted to the same society, and to its superintendent, Dr. M. M. Quaife, for the opportunity to reproduce the second of our illustrations, a map in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, bearing the title "Carte de la nouvelle decouverte que les RR. Peres Jesuistes ont fait en l'année 1672, et continuée par le R. Pere Jacques Marquette de la mesme Compagnie, accompagné de quelques François en l'année 1673, qu'on pourra nommer la Manitoumie, a cause de la Statue qui s'est trouvée dans une belle vallée, et que les Sauvages vont reconnoistre pour leur Divinité, quils appellent Manitou, qui signifie Esprit, ou Genie." The original, a map measuring 73 by 44 centimetres, is preserved in vol. C., 17701, in the library named, and is no. 7 in Gabriel Marcel Cartographie de la Nouvelle France, closely resembling no. 202 in Henry Harrisse Notes sur la Nouvelle France. It has been reproduced, as no. 30, in Marcel Reproductions de Cartes et de Globes relatifs à la Découverte de l'Amérique, atlas ( Paris, 1893), and is discussed on pp. 106-108 of the volume of letter-press accompanying that atlas. It was evidently drawn from the description of Marquette Mississippi River voyage, and was the prototype of the map published in Malchisédec Thévenot's Recueil de Voyages ( Paris, 1681), a map reproduced in the late Dr. R. G. Thwaites Jesuit Relations, vol. LIX., but contains additional data.

As to the name Manitoumie (which to be sure never adhered to the region), one who looks at the legend of the map in our facsimile, or in the original photograph, even with a magnifying glass, may easily think that the word has not precisely the form Manitoumie, but comparison with the duplicate will probably convince him that though the word in our map seems to end with the two letters
