An interesting Italian version of D'Anville's map of the Southeast. Most notable for the incorrect boundaries showing a huge Louisiana extending eastward to include present-day Kentucky, Mississippi and Alabama. The boundary between the Carolinas and Florida is shown splitting Georgie at the Alatamaha ou George R. Good detail of towns and cities, Indian villages and tribes, rivers, portages, forts, harbors and early place names.
