Description

Fine old color example of this rare variant edition of Daniel De La Fueille's map of North America.

The map includes a large configuration of California as an Island on the second Sanson Model.  

The Rio Grande River is shown flowing from the Taos area of New Mexico to the Gulf of Mexico, unlike earlier maps that showed the river flowing into the Gulf of California.

Florida is called Tegeste Province.

The depcition of the Mississippi River is based upon Hennepin, with a very curious appearance of the "R. Ochio ou Belle Riviere" (Ohio River), far north of its true course.

Rarity

This is a rare variant, with the additional words "Noord America", which does not appear in MacLaughlin.
