Description

Rare map of America, published by Pierre Mariette in Paris.

As noted by Burden, this map falls into the series of maps derived from Hondius's map of America, published in 1618.

The map is not recorded in either Tooley's Sequence of Maps of America or the Loeb-Larocque reference work on French derivatives of Dutch maps.

The map eschews the trend for showing California as an island, unlike most French maps of the period.  

Rarity

The map is very rare. We find no examples of the map in the Antique Map Price Record. 

This is the first time we've ever offered the map for sale.
