Title : Amerique Septentrionale divisée en ses principales parties. . .1692. [California as an Island].
Map maker : SANSON, N. / JAILLOT, A.H. / MORTIER, P..
Date : Amsterdam, c.1692.
Size : 21.9 x 33.9 inches. / 55.5 x 86.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :Very good impression of Jaillot's large map of North America, showing California as an Island, based upon Sanson's landmark map of 1656.
A first state.
The map shows the Great Lakes opened up on the west end and indicates six, rather than five, Great Lakes. The source of the Mississippi is pushed far west of its true location. The east coast of North America is based upon Sanson, although the projection of California is his second projection, differing from the 1656.
Extremely decorative cartouche with dedication to Le Dauphin, and his coat of arms in top. Eight distance scales within cartouches.
The map notes Nicolas Sanson as the mapmaker and claims that the map was published by Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712).
However this plate is from the newly engraved Dutch counterfeited edition of the ' Atlas Nouveau', published by Pieter Mortier in Amsterdam.
Pierre Mortier's grandparents left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Pierre Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books.
He established himself in atlases and introduced the modern French maps by Sanson's and Jaillot's in a larger format than the classical Dutch maps.
Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Mor 1.
Condition : Printed on 2 sheets joined together. Printed on heavy, somewhat browned paper. Some oxidation of paper due to light offsetting of ink. Some marginal spotting. Good dark impression.
