    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
