Title : Grondvlakte van Nieuw Orleans, de Hoosdstad van Louisiana / De Uitloop van de Rivier Missisippi / De oostelyke Ingang van de Missisippi, met een Plan van het Fort, 't Welk het Kanaal Beheerscht.
Map maker : TIRION, Issac.
Date : Amsterdam, ca. 1769.
Size : 13.0 x 17.6 inches. / 33.1 x 44.7 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :A sought after, highly attractive, decorative sheet that shows three maps arranged around a large compass rose. This work represents Tirion's version of a map that was first executed by De la Tour in 1720, two years after New Orleans was officially founded.
In the left half of the plate is a plan of the city of New Orleans (now the French Quarter district) vividly depicting its protective canal, quays and barracks.
Two smaller maps make up the right half. One is a map of the vicinity of New Orleans, including the delta region and surrounding bayou. The third map depicts the location of Fort la Balisle, which sank into the marsh lands towards the end of the 18th century.
Three finely engraved cartouches (one for each map) enhance presentation.
Van Ermen #69
Condition : In very good condition. Issued folding, now pressed. Right hand margin slightly reduced, still ample for framing.
Sharp impression. Strong paper. Great colour.


ID: 90178
