Title : A new & accurate map of Louisiana, with part of Florida. . ..
Map maker : BOWEN, Th..
Date : London, 1744.
Size : 13.5 x 16.5 inches. / 34.2 x 41.8 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :Extremely faint strip of age toning on part of the centerfold, otherwise fine condition. An English view of North America compiled from available French maps, especially those of Bellin used in Charlevoix's History of New France. English cartographers had little direct knowledge of the interior at this time, receiving practically no information from the English colonies confined to the seaboard. The French were the ones actively exploring the Mississippi River and its tributaries and English cartographers like Bowen copied their maps.
This strong early engraving features over-sized great lakes and interior detail as far west as the Rio Grande. Elaborate title cartouche at the top left. Numerous places and Indian Tribes named. The present day area of Texas is named Country of the Cenis, and Louisiana placed over the entire southern Mississippi River Valley. A note at the bottom left corner gives credit for the geography of the map to the French cartographer Jacques Bellin.

Condition : In very good condition. Wide margins.

ID: 09596
