    This uncommon Italian map of the Americas features several notes about exploration, including mentions of the discoveries of Davis and Anson. The Fiume d'Occidente (or River of the West) is depicted flowing from an unnamed lake (perhaps Lake Winnipeg) to Cape Blanco. Nuovo Albione appears on the West Coast, and the northwestern portion of the continent is labeled Parti non Scoperte (or "undiscovered areas"). To the west of Luisiana is Nuovo Messico in present-day Texas. For some reason, Fort Rosalie appears west of New Orleans. There are numerous place names and Indian tribes identified throughout the map. The mythical Laguna de Xarayes is located in the middle of South America. Engraved by Andrea Scacciati.

Condition Description: A fine, dark impression on a clean sheet. Issued folding.
