Scarce miniature map of California as a island, from Pierre Duval's La Geographie Universeille.
The second earliest map to focus on just California and the contiguous coastal regions. The map is derived from Audience de Guadalajara, 1657, by his uncle, Nicolas Sanson. Differences are the presence of Destroit D'Anian, and various unnamed mountain ranges. A third state with lower right Nouvelle Espagne ou= Mexique added.

Map shows place names on the west coast, including Drake's Bay, Monterey, Pt. Concepcion, San Clemente Island and Cabo San Luca. Quivera, Anian and N. Albion are named, along with Cibola. Lac de Conibas is shown. East of the Mountain range in New Meixo, the Apaches, "Vaqueros mont suala" and Poala are shown.

Showing the myth that California was an island based, apparently, on a mistaken 1602 journal entry by Spanish explorer Father Antonio de la Ascension was still widely believed!
