Title : Carte des parties nord et ouest de l' Amerique. . ..
Map maker : DIDEROT, D..
Date : Paris, 1772.
Size : 11.8 x 15.2 inches. / 29.9 x 38.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Map of North America, as well as Canada & Alaska. California & the Pacific Northwest coast to Alaska is still speculative, whereas the east coast is depicted from Newfoundland, Nova Scotia & New England down to Florida and the Gulf Coast, showing Boston, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Georgia. Inland regions are primarily Indian lands and largely unexplored in the West.
In 1772 Robert de Vaugondy, a well-known engraver in Paris produced a series of 10 charts based on the assumptions and speculations of the current scientists and navigators, regarding a Northwest Passage across the North American continent and another passage to the Indies via Asia.
This 10 part series appeared in Diderot's "Encyclopedie" in 1779, and this important chart is Sheet 1 and was copied from Samuel Engel's chart of 1764. Engel's theory being that a passage could exist because sea water doesn't freeze! Robert de Vaugondy was sufficiently open- minded to reproduce Engel's map as part of the series.

Condition : In very good condition. Wide margins.

ID: 25610
