Description:

Nice example of Vander Aa's rare and highly desireable map of the Florida, Texas and the Southern portion of what would become the United States.

The map shows the early English and Spanish settlements, including St. Augustine, Indian Lands, mountains, rivers, as they were then known to exist in the early part of the 18th Century.

Dozens of place names along the eastern seaboard and the Gulf Coast. Nice detail in Mississippi Valley region and Texas. The Mississippi is pushed far west of its true course. A truly odd Apalachicoli River runs nearly due north to what would probably be Kentucky. Based on De L'Isle's seminal map. 

Nice example, with the picture frame border, which appeared in Vander Aa's Nouvelle Theatre Du Monde, published in 1713.
