Rare map of America, published separately by Melchior Tavernier in Paris in 1627. Tavernier's map of America is one of several rare separately issued French maps of America, based upon the Jodocus Hondius map of 1618.
The map provides an early image of America, including the curious bulge along the coastline between the Chesapeake (Chesepioc) and C. de S. Roman. The Northwest Coast of America is quite remarkably depicted, where there is no sign of the Great Lakes and a mountain range runs from East to West for nearly half of the North American continent.

In New Spain, their are hints of the 7 Cities of Cibola (Sept) and the Rio Grand is quite prominently shown flowing into the Gulf of California, not the Gulf of Mexico. The known limits of the Mississippi River are quite limited and in fact there are two rivers shown, along with a curious projection for Florida.
California is not shown as a island, reflecting the fact that the Dutch and French map makers had not yet widely adopted this myth. The early search for the Northwest passage is in evidence, with a nice depiction of Hudson's Bay and the various bays and straits to the north.
The two polar insets detail the known and mythical details of these regions, with a hint of 'Terre Antarctique Incognue' (the unknown southern lands still prominently depicted.

Burden notes two states of the map, this first state and a later edition of 1640, which adds Amsterdam, Pleymouth, Accadie, S. Augustino and other details in the northeast and N. Albion and Quivera in the western parts of North America.
