    Father Kino's important map was the first map to accurately depict the region, in particular the relative positions of the Colorado and Gila rivers and the correct localization of the rivers, valleys and mountains of part of Sonora and Arizona. Kino's map was intended to disprove the California as an Island theory, but instead actually fueled the controversy and thus the map was reprinted many times. This is the rare, first edition of the map engraved by Inselin. An essential map to any collection of California or the American Southwest.

Condition Description: Issued folding on watermarked paper with light offsetting and a few faint spots in the lower right corner. A binding trim at lower left has been replaced with old paper.

Ref: Wheat (TMW) #89; Wagner #483.
