Description

Scarce map of America with a fascinating treatment of the Northwest Coast of America.

The map shows a very unusual "est fort Inconu" and "Terre de Jesso," a curious marriage between the treatment of the region from the mid-17th century and more contemporary geographical knowledge. The course of the Mississippi River is pushed well west of its normal path, such that the mouth of the river is in Texas. The large Terres Austales and a curious coast of New Zealand are also throwbacks to the prior century.

The cartography is largely derived from D'Lisle.
