    Description

    1686 Map of Mexico or New Spain , 6.75" x 8". Colored engraved map by Frenchman Allain Manesson Mallet (1630-1706) published in Frankfort in 1686. Figure 23 from a German book, titled at top: "Mexica oder Neu Spannien." Vignettes of an Indian battle in "Louisiane" and a raging sea battle in the "Mer du Sud Pacifique." "Nouveau Mexique" is the area north of Mexico. "Californie" is at the left (Baja California). "Floride" is where Texas is located with an unnamed river separating it from Mexico. Incredibly, the area which is today the United States resembles the light green area north of pink-colored Mexico depicted in this map printed over 320 years ago! Browned at upper edge, minor soiling. Fine condition

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
