This picture is the frontispiece in Volume One of Histoire de L'Amerique Septentrionale by Claude-Charles Le Roy Bacqueville de la Potherie, published in Paris in 1753.  This book contains the first printing of the journal of Nicolas Perrot, which we give in English as document AJ-046.  The picture shows an idealized view of the first encounter between Europeans and American Indians.
