John Mason Map
John Mason's map of Newfoundland, ca. 1617.
One of the earliest detailed maps of the island portion of the province is that by John Mason published in a work by William Vaughan. Like the Desceliers map, it is unusual because it has south at the top of the map, rather than the usual north.
