Title : Amerique septentrionale..
Map maker : JAILLOT, A.H..
Date : Paris, 1692.
Size : 22.8 x 34.6 inches. / 58.0 x 88.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :Engraved by Cordier. Spectacular example of Jaillot's map of North America, showing California as an Island, based upon Sanson's landmark map of 1656. This map shows the open Great Lakes on the west end.
With northern South America at bottom, a partial Greenland to the north. Terres Arcticques with no sign of a northwest passage to the Pacific.
The northwest part of the continent is blank, being unknown and the normal conjecture not rendered.
Quivira is shown in an early assumed location in the Southwest, the Mississippi River well to the west of actual. Early British colonies are named, with N. Plevmouth noted. Cape Cod as N. Holland.
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.
Tooley, The Mapping of America, 37.
Condition : Good and dark impression, paper slightly age-toned. Very good.

ID: 17539
