Description

Nice detailed map of the Gulf Coast from Pensacola to the mouth of the Mississippi River, from the February 1772 edition of Gentleman's Magazine, with a nice inset plan for a New Settlement.

Extends to west of New Orleans to include Plantations along the Iberville at its confluence with Mississippi. Also names Biloxi and a number of islands, rivers, etc.

The map shows the coastline at a time when the English controlled the region, although the Spanish were actively allied with the Indians in the regions plotting to retake the region.
