    Seutter's Rare Map of Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi and Canada and a Famous Spoof of the "Mississippi Bubble"

    [Map]. Mattaeus Seutter. Accurata delineatio celeberrimae regionis Ludoviciane vel Gallice Louisiane ol. Canadae et Floridae adpellatione in Septemtrionali America descriptae quae hodie nomine fluminis Mississippi vel St. Louis per colonias et navigationes Gallorum ab immensas opes et adfluentiam magis magisque inclarescit ex fide digniss. [Augsburg: G. M. Seutter, n.d., ca. 1740]. Hand-colored engraved map. Approximately 20.5 x 23.5 inches. Some toning, creasing, and edgewear, paper tape reinforcement on verso of central vertical crease. Still, very good. This map, being of French origin, emphasizes France's claims and territories in North America. The engraving on the lower right is a spoof of the famous "Mississippi Bubble," where the collapse of a major French company (Compagnie d'Occident), charged with developing and exploiting French territories in North America, triggered a major financial crisis throughout Europe.
