The map shows Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and parts of New Brunswick and Quebec.

The map shows the railway to Quebec. It uses hachures to show elevation.

The map has a bar scale in miles below the title and a decorative border showing frozen branches, scrolls and fish on lines. The map was drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin; the illustrations were drawn by A. Fussell and engraved by J. Rogers. James W. Macnutt Collection.
