Scarce first edition of Vivien's map of Mexico and Upper California.

Texas is named, and includes a number of place names, including Presidio, S Antonio, Nadadco, Nacogdoches, Guarde, Ranco, Lagunilla, Encinos, Mascoso, Loredo and a number of coastal towns. Both of the mythical rivers in California (Rio Sacramento and Rio S. Buenaventura) are shown extending to the mythical Lakes Timpanagos and Teguayo.

A number of settlements are shown on the Upper Colorado River and around Utah. The missions of Upper California are shown. The Gila is shown incorrectly flowing into the Gulf of California and a conjectural Martiers River is shown west of the Colorado River.

Nice detail in New Mexico and Colorado, including Spanish Pike, James Peak and settlements west of the Rocky Mountains, which are referred to as Montagnes Oregon ou Rocheues.

From Vivien de St. Martin's scarce Atlas Universel.
