Beaver

Lahontan, Louis Armand de Lom d'Arce, baron de
In New Voyages to North-America (London: printed for H. Bonwicke [et al], 1703).

This drawing depicts a beaver and a scene showing Native Americans capturing and drying the meat of wild “Beeves” (long horned beef cattle). Lahontan had visited New France with the French colonial army in the late 1780s, and his account of his travels helped shaped European perceptions of North America.
