Compagnies franches de la Marine and Canadian Militia in the Expedition of Chevalier De Troyes to Hudson's Bay 1686. Francis Back

Compagnies franches de la Marine 1718

This is the cover of the old journal Neptunia which was connected to the Musee de la Marine. I had them in photocopied form so it's nice to see colour.
