Stiking map, centered on the Mississippi Valley, and covering most of the US, based upon De L'Isle's monumental map of the region. The map provides marvelous detail in the interior of the US on either side of the Mississippi, including the early French Forts. The exploration & settlement west of the Mississippi is also shown, including Forts, Native American Villages and other placenames. The map highlights the unknown region in Northern Texas & the Native American Territories, between the Mississippi and Rio Grande. The first settlements west of New Orleans along the Gulf Coast and the interior of Texas are shown, along with the courses of a number of rivers. Nice wide margined example in full original color and highlighting the newly formed Georgia Colony.
