Description

Rare miniature map of California, published by Johann Ulrich Muller in Frankfurt.

The map shows the island of California and the contiguous parts of Mexico and the Southwest, covering all of what would now be New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and parts of Oregon and Idaho.

Cibola, Anian, Quivira and many other mythical places are named.

A fine large example of California as an island, one of only a handful of maps to focus on the island as a main feature. The projection is based on Sanson.
