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