Attractive full color example of map illustrating William Batram's travels in the Southeastern US.

William Bartram, son of a Pennsylvania Quaker and naturalist, undertook his highly important exploration of the American Southeast in 1773, travelling through parts of Georgia, North and South Carolina, and Florida and recording his observations regarding the flora, fauna and Indian tribes. Bartram made discoveries and sketches of over 200 new botanical specimens, including the Venus Fly Trap and a now extinct tree named for his great friend Benjamin Franklin, calling it the Franklin tree or Franklinia Alatamatha.
