Scarce map of the southeastern portion of North America, based upon De L'Isle. Extends from the Rio Grande River to the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers and east to include the Chesapeak and Delaware Rivers, and south to Florida and the Bahamas. A superb, striking image, with rich details throughout and a striking cartouche showing and Indian Hunt in the New World. Excellent detail in Florida, the Gulf Coast and the Texas Coastline, as well as in the interior of Texas and the South. The two large Mohawk Villages, illustrated like European Cities, is an unusual touch. S. Agostino is also shown as a large fortified town as is Charleston and Filadelphia. Fine example of this map, which is now rarely seen on the market.
