Description

Unusual map of the Southeastern United States, with nomenclature entirely in English, from La Rouchefoucalt-Liancourt's Voyage dans les Etats-Unis ....

The map includes many roads, towns, counties, court houses and similar details. The populations of a number of Indian Villages are shown in Georgia. Georgia extends to the Mississippi River. A thin strip of land below Tennessee is shown as the Territory of the United States.

While we have previously encountered editions of this map with a French Title and nomenclature, this is the first example we have seen in English. This English edition also includes additional informaiton, such as "Land claimed by the United States" (West Florida). The lands conveyed to settlers under the Treaty of Grenville are also noted (see for example the square west of Galliopolis on the Ohio River). The detail in the Western roads is quite extraordinary for an 18th Century map.
