Description

Nice full example De La Feuille's map of North America.

Includes a description of California in French text in the lower left corner and additional text and several ships and sea monsters in the Atlantic. Very detailed throughout, with excellent example of California as an Island on the 2nd Sanson model and excellent detail in the Mississippi River Valley and Great Lakes regions. the interior parts of North America reflect the explorations of the Jesuits and the Spanish in the Southwest.

The map was copied by Chiquet in the next decade, with additional embellishments, quite possibly using De La Feuille's plate.

Condition Description
Minor abrasion at top center, just affecting neat line.
