Description

One of two parts of this rare richly engraved map by De Leth. Includes classic late Hennepin/La Salle cartographic treatment of the Mississippi, with its mouth near Galveston. Prominent and interesting treatments of Florida and the Great Lakes. The large inset view shows the Cape of Good Hope and Table Bay in South Africa. The early sea routes of LeMaire and Schouten are shown. Both sheets have recently been offered as a pair for $20,000.00. Minor restorations and and extended upper margin, but overall, a nice example of this rare decorative map. Wonderful detail in the Atlantic and in Africa. Norwich 320.
