    A scarce Austrian map of the Western Hemisphere based on D'Anville and the surveys of Gov. Pownall. The large map depicts the United States extending to the Mississippi River, and the region to its west is under Spanish rule with Louisiana, New Mexico and New Navarro named. The majority of the northwest part of the continent is blank with Quivira shown in present-day Idaho. In South America, the fictitious lakes Parima and Xarayes appear. Three insets augment the main map including Cook's discoveries in Alaska, a detailed view of Hudson Bay and Baffin Bay, and a map of the United States showing 13 states along with the frontier stretching to the Mississippi. The map is decorated by two title cartouches surrounded by wreathes. Von Reilly was a Viennese art dealer and map publisher who assembled three atlases between 1789-99.

Condition Description: A strong impression on watermarked paper with wide original margins. There is minor foxing along the top border, otherwise fine.
