Title : L'Amerique Selon les nouvelles Observations de Messrs de l'Academie des Scineces etc..
Map maker : VAN DER AA, P..
Date : Leiden, 1713.
Size : 19.7 x 26.2 inches. / 50.0 x 66.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Scarce map. Pieter van der Aa's lavish engraving makes his maps among the most prized of the early eighteenth century. This is one of the most attractive and superbly engraved of all California as an island maps.
The British colonies are confined to the Eastern seaboard by "Les Cinq Nationals Iroquoises" while the French possessions extend to the Mississippi River. The Spanish possession of Florida includes the Carolinas, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico coastal regions. Nova Mexicans and Nova Granada take in nearly all of the west coast. In South America, the Amazon is the most prominent feature with the Orinoco being confused with the River Negro.
Exceptional and unusually detailed rendition of the Great Lakes.
The map also includes a number of annotations. The projection of South America is also unusually wide for the period. The cartouche features a wonderful Indian Village scene.
McLaughlin, California 184. Tooley, America, 71, p.129. Wheat, 95.
Condition : Good and dark impression. Some very minor paper thinness in center fold underlaid. Very good condition.
