Title : Amerique Septentrionale Publiee Sous Les Auspices de Monseigneur le Duc D'Orleans.....
Map maker : D'ANVILLE, Jean Baptiste Bourguignon.
Date : Paris, 1746.
Size : 32.7 x 34.3 inches. / 83.0 x 87.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :A fine large-scale wall map of North America, printed on 4 sheets of heavy paper, now joined. One of the best French maps produced prior to the French & Indian War. D'Anville was the Royal Geographer and Cartographer to the King of France. He followed Delisle as the chief proponent of scientific cartography, and his influence on his contemporaries was profound.
D'Anville dominated all contemporary geographers, leaving blank spaces in his maps where knowledge was insufficient. According to RV Tooley, his representation of the Great Lakes is superior to that of his contemporary, John Mitchell. The newly formed colony of Georgia is also shown.
The map is engraved by Guillame Delahaye. The decorative cartouche was drawn by Graevlot and engraved by Major.
