Description:

Decorative map based upon De L'Isle's landmark map of Mexico and Florida, first issued in 1703.

De L'Isle's map was the first to introduce the information from La Salle, Bienville, d'Iberville and other French explorers in America. It was the first map to accurately portray the mouth of the Mississippi and the Great Lakes region. Also accurately shown for the first time are the English settlements on the east coast.

The reports of Iberville are present in the villages in the lower Mississippi Valley and Texas, where the Spanish were active building missions and presidios. Several Dutch and German cartographers copied De L'Isle's work, but added the rich embellishments present in this example.

The tracks of the Spanish Galleons and routes to Havana are shown. 


Condition Description: A number of thin spots and some minor loss, expertly restored on verso.
