Description:

Fine dark impression of Jaillot's striking large format map of North America, showing California as an Island, based upon Sanson's landmark map of 1656.

The map also shows the Great Lakes opened up on the west end, as was the norm in the earlier examples (although curiously enough the open ended Lakes also show up in some later examples of the map). The source of the Mississippi is pushed far west of its true location. The east coast of North America is based upon Sanson, although the projection of California is his second projection, differing from the 1656. 

Striking full color example.
