Description :A superb map covering the region from the Great Lakes and Nova Scotia through Central America, the Caribbean and Venezuela, and from New Mexico (naming Taos and Santa Fe) to the eastern seaboard. The map is based largely on Delisle's map of 1703 (Carte du Mexique et de la Floride).
The British colonies are shown confined east of the Appalachians. The map itself is filled with settlement place names, Indian tribes and villages. Sea routes from Vera Cruz and Cartagena to Havana and Spain are outlined.
It is richly embellished with a fine title cartouche depicting two native figures and symbols of America's natural resources. In the Atlantic, there is a large scene of extensive gold mining operations with Indians bringing their treasures to fill the European's chest. Off the Pacific coast of Mexico is yet another opulent engraving of a raging sea battle between many ships.
The tracks of the Spanish Galleons and routes to Havana are shown. Full color wide margined example of Homann's edition of a landmark map in the history of American cartography.
Martin & Martin 17, Cumming 137, Lowery 437, Wagner 474.
