Champlain Map Auctioned for £130,000

A 1612 map of New France drawn by Samuel de Champlain — briefly the subject of an investigation by Harvard curators who thought it might be a copy that went missing a few years ago — has fetched £130,000 at a Sotheby’s auction on Thursday. That’s three times what was expected. The map went to a private collector. GeoCarta, CBC News, Vancouver Sun.
