Engraved by Edward Rooker . It would appear that Rooker's attractive view was re-issued, within the present decorative engraved border, as an illustration (No 115) for Hervey's New System of Geography Vol. II p.637 and published by G & T.Wilkie, London, 1785.
Depicted is a British man-o-war, with ships boats in tow, making signal before arriving at anchorage below Quebec city. Buildings of the both the upper and lower town, as well as the citadel may be seen.
This is a highly decorative and attractive 18th. cent. view for collectors.
