    Description

    [Maps]. Guillaume de Lisle. L'Amerique Septentrionale.... Par G. de l'Isle, Geographe. A Paris, chez l'Auteur sur le Quai de l'Horloge, 1700 [actually ca. 1708]. Third issue.

    More Information:

    [Maps]. Guillaume de Lisle. L'Amerique Septentrionale. Dressee sur les observations de Mrs. de l'Academie Royale des Sciences, & quelques autres, & sur les Memoires les plus recens. Par G. de l'Isle, Geographe. A Paris, chez l'Auteur sur le Quai de l'Horloge, 1700 [actually ca. 1708]. Third issue, with the Quai de l'Horloge address. Approximately 19.5 x 26.5 inches. Hand-colored. Some toning to map, some mild wear or creases to margins, one crease down the center of the map. Overall, near fine. This map is important for three reasons: it is the first map to show, once again, California as a peninsula connected to the continent instead of an island; the Great Lakes are well-defined for the first time; the mouth of the Mississippi is correctly shown in Louisiana instead of in Texas.

    The resulting auction of my property overwhelmed me. I want to thank Tom Slater and the Heritage team for a very satisfactory experience and profitable result with my historical consignment.
