A great French map of the continent full of the best knowledge and latest conjecture. Hand color distinguishes the US as east of the Mississippi and north of the Spanish possession of Florida. Spain is shown as holding a walloping tract of everything south of the 40 parallel, from the Mississippi River to the pacific Coast. The legendary lost city of “Quivira” is shown around what is roughly Utah and Nevada. A “River of the West” is shown reaching from northern Minnesota all the way to a mythic large bay around present day Washington state.
Condition is very good, with original outline hand color. Image size is 7.5 x 9 (inches).
