Description:

Scarce large format map of the settled portions of North America, extending from New England and the Great Lakes to Florida and west to the Mississippi River.

The map is one of Bellin's earliest maps of any part of North America.. The map was originally produced for Charlevoix's Histoire et description générale de la Nouvelle France. The map was compiled in part from the Chaussegros de Lery manuscripts and is also noteworthy for the fictious mountain range in Michigan. Rich with Indian information, notes, early french forts and other early features. 

In 1750 and again in 1755, Bellin significantly revised and updated the map, including significantly improved cartographic detaiil in the Great Lakes.  The coverage of the map is also extended further south to show all of Florida.
