Title : Floridae Americae Provinciae recens & exactissima descriptio . . ..
Map maker : DE BRY, Th..
Date : Frankfurt, 1591.
Size : 14.4 x 17.8 inches. / 36.7 x 45.1 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :A superb map of the Eastern Seaboard from Cape Lookout to Florida, with Cuba and the Bahamas, by the official artist of the second French Huguenot expedition to their colony at Charlefort, 1564.
Jacques Le Moyne's map is one of the most important 16th Century maps of the region.
Of interest is the large expanse of water at the top of the map, either representing the Great Lakes or Verrazzano's Sea: the waterfall, believed to be based on the local Indians' accounts of Niagara and Port Royal named on a map for the first time.
When the Spanish destroyed the colony of 'heretics' Le Moyne fled into the wild, but eventually joined other Huguenot immigrants in London. Working from memory (having lost most of his possessions in the swamps) he produced this map and a number of water colours (only one now extant). In 1587 de Bry met le Moyne in London and tried to buy his papers, but as le Moyne was working for Sir Walter Raleigh he refused to sell. However le Moyne died the following year and de Bry was able to buy this map and some sketches from his widow.
Due to its oversize this map was usually cropped and folded, in order to fit into the book. A very desirable item, in a very good and dark impression.
Condition : Paper age-toned, brittle and cut into the margin with loss of image. Poor condition, sold as is.
