   M-10818: Map of North America prior to the French & Indian War


 

Description:

M-10818: (Image : 19 x 23'') ''AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE...1750'' Paris: S. Robert De Vaugondy, c. 1750.  Engraved map with original hand-coloring.

This mid-18th century map was published just a few years prior to the onset of the French & Indian War. During this period the region of the St. Lawrence Valley, the Great Lakes and upper Mississippi Valley became v e r y well known to French traders. De Vaugondy, who was Geographer to the King, had access to privileged source material, which enabled him to publish the most accurate maps of the period. Political boundaries are well noted and Indian Tribes are located throughout. The area of present-day Texas shows the location of La Salle's settlement as well as the place of his death in 1685. Although the Northeast region is quite accurate for the period, it is evident that southern Florida & the Northwest region have yet to be explored. The cartouche depicts people, vegetation & animals native to North America (including a bear nestled in the top of a tree).
