Copper plate engraved map, outline handcolor, approximately 6 x 8 inches on sheet 8 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches, two vertical folds as issued. Some faint foxing, overall very good condition. The western half of the continent is marked Mexico or New Spain, with an extensive "Parts Undiscovered" (with the legendary Quivira located at its southern edge) and much of the blank slate of an unmapped northwest coast and interior filled by the decorative cartouche. The greater part of the centre and east is marked New France or Louisiana, with Canada and "Labrador or New Britain" to the north. The colonies huddle along the east coast. The area of present day Texas is named "Senis or Tekas." The map is not dated in the cartouche; "Page 254, Vol I" appears in the upper left margin of the map. Item #49064
