Amerique Septentrionale Publiee Sous Les Auspices De Monseigneur Le Duc D'Orleands Premier...
A large French engraving for a good portion of North America, spanning into the near West and Spanish possessions in the Southwest to the British colonies along the east coast and beyond. Has amazing substance for the major rivers of the area, specifically the Mississippi and nearby Missouri Rivers. D'Anville was a formidable figure in 18th century French cartography, and this map illustrates the substance that he could offer. Notes a wealth of native tribal locations, including the “Cherakis” and Chickasaws. Does include an early primitive Georgia, just below “Caroline”.Can be joined or remain separate for easier storage. Lowery, W. #381; Karpinski, L.C. (MI) p.138; Tooley, R.V. (Amer) pp.316-317.
