THE AMERICAS L'AMERIQUE AUTREMENT LE NOUVEAU MONDE

Code: M1826

Cartographer: DU VAL Pierre

Date: 1676 Paris

Size: 39*37cms

RARE. A strong impression of one of the later states of a scarce and attractive map by Pierre Du Val. Although several states are recorded, all are uncommon, and feature typical mid-seventeenth century details with California as an island, and a relatively early delineation of the Great Lakes, with five shown of which two are open-ended.Above California is the Destroit d' Anien and the large Terre de Iesso, or land of Jesso, that resulted from confusing reports by De Vries on his expedition in the waters north of Japan. A notation concerning a possible Northwest Passage fills the blank region above Anien. Several colonial settlements appear on the eastern seaboard including Iamestoun, Christina, London al: Boston, N. Amsterdam al: Manhate. In South America, the mythical Parime Lake is located in Guiana with its legendary Manoa-el dorado (City of Gold), and there is good detail of the Jesuit missions. The map includes the western coasts of Europe and Africa and the Prime Meridian goes through the Isle de Fer.

This issue of the plate is identified by the engraved date and added decoration to the title.Original colour.

Mint Condition. Ref: Burden, The Mapping Of North America, 311, state 7.
