Click image to zoom old map image



Title : L'Amérique septentrionale et les terres polaires arctique (sic) / dressée par N. de Fer..
Map maker : DE FER, N..
Date : Paris,1697.
Size : 5.4 x 6.1 inches. / 13.7 x 15.5 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :An interesting small map of North America by Nicolas de Fer. From his rare "Petit et Nouveau Atlas". The first edition was published in 1697 and was republished in 1705 and 1723.
Good depiction of the polar regions of Canada, the Great lake and St. Lawrence Region.
California is shown as an island on the Sanson model.

The mouth of the Mississippi is pushed into Texas, a legacy of La Salle's early reports, and the Carolinas now appear on the map. One curious feature is the depiction of Mobile in the are of modern Tennessee.

The finely engraved map is dated 1692-97 and was engraved by C. Inselin, the same engraver who engraved the maps in de Fer's later Atlas Curieux, published 1700-1705.

Unlike the more common Atlas Curieux with a single map of the Western Hemisphere, de Fer's Petit et Nouveau Atlas contains a separate map of North America. The map is dated 1693, shows California as an Island with an indented northern coast and no place names, but labeled Isle de Californie. ¤
Condition : Paper slightly age toned and browned, a dark impression. Old repair of a small split in lower part center fold.
Accompanied by a double page engraved text sheet with a description of the region.


ID: 37694
