Description

Early map of the United States and the whole of North America, shortly after the conclusion of the Revolution. Louisiana is still a French possession and Massive New Mexico and New Albion dominate the West. The Western Sea is noted opposite the Straits Juan De Fuca, althoug without a coastline. The River of the West also remains, with an unbroken course from D'Aguilar's discoveries on the NW Coast to the Mississippi River. Teguayo & Quivira appear, although now in the region which would roughly be Utah. The Snowy Mountains in California are shown, along with several apocrypal rivers, including the Carmel. Drake's landing near San Francisco is noted. Some curiously named Blue Mountains appear in the Northern Baja, not far from San Diego. A number of settlments are shown on the Rio Grande, including a note regarding the Apaches of Seven Rivers. Many Indian names in the interior, including Kansez, Black Padoucas, Padoucas, Panimatia, Eastern Sioux, Outaouas, Outagamis, and Moscoutops. Many other early interesting features. The US State claims run to the Mississippi River, based upon early British Colonial claims. A scarce map, attractively embellished in wash color. Slight soiling but otherwise an excellent map.
