Title : L'America Settentrionale. Nuovamente Corretta et Accresciuta Secondo le Relationi Piu Moderne da Guglielmo Sansone Geografo . . . 1687 (California as an island).
Map maker : ROSSI, G.G..
Date : Rome, 1687.
Size : 16.3 x 20.6 inches. / 41.4 x 52.2 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.
Description :Second edition of Rossi's map of North America, based upon Sanson's seminal map, but with revised Italian nomenclature. From Rossi's Mercurio Geographico..
Includes a detailed California as an Island on Sanson's model, early open ended Great Lakes (one of the earliest appearances of the 5 Great Lakes) and a mislocated pre-La Salle/ Jolliet/ Hennepin Mississippi Configuration, pushed well West of its true location and quite speculative in its course.
Nice detail in the Spanish Southwest along the Rio Grande, locating Taos and Santa Fe in the North and identifying Cibola.
A number of early Indian names, including the Apaches and Zuni appear. A Lago de Oro is shown off the Gulf of California. Quivera appears in modern day Texas, along with Granada.
The East Coast of North America includes many early place names, including N. Amsterdam, Chesapeac, Powhata, Gotheburg (an early Swedish Settlement), Bristou London, Plimouth, Nassau, Elsinburg, R. Iourdain, etc.
Engraved by Giorgio Widman.
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!
Condition : A dark impression. Marginal light staining, paper slightly age-toned. Repair of a marginal tear, not affecting engraved area. Unfolded sheet.
