    Very early territorial map of Florida, from the French version of Carey & Lea's atlas. The map shows only the first two counties: Escambia and St. Johns, corresponding to the old colonial divisions of East and West Florida. The interior river systems are still largely conjectural, particularly the St. John River which has its headwaters in the large lake Mayaco. Two roads lead east out of St. Augustine; one to Rollstown near present-day Palatka on the St. Johns River and the other to Ivitachua just south of Ft. St. Marks. A number of forts are shown in northern Florida including Ft. Barancas, Ft. Gadsden or Collinton, Ft. St. Marks, Ft. Poppa, Picolota Ft., and a British fort erected during the war on the Appalachicola River. There is virtually nothing shown in the southern peninsula. The surrounding French text provides extensive information on Florida's history and topography. Measures 24.1 x 17.3" with text.

Condition Description: There is minor soiling along the sheet's edges, well away from image, and remnants of hinge tape on verso.
