First issue, first state. New Orleans not yet listed!. This map is known for its detailed depiction of the states adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico region and the Mississippi River. It is also the first printed map to show a variant name for Texas (Teijas) and the land routes of many of the explorers of previous centuries.
On the map, De L’Isle made assertions that Carolina was a possession of the French. Shows Indian villages, "nations derangees, nations detruites," the route of de Soto, Moscoso, Cavelier, Tonty and Denis, etc. Relief shown pictorially.
Inset map: Carte particuliere des embouchures de la Rivie. S. Louis et de la Mobile, i.e., Mississippi Delta area and Mobile Bay. Kohl states this is the mother and main source of all later maps of the Mississippi.
De L'Isle's "Carte de la Louisiane" became the primary reference source for the lower Mississippi and lower Missouri river valleys and was used by other cartographers as late as 1797. This map is believed to be the oldest map consulted in the planning of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
