Attractive map covering the region from west Florida through California and Northern Mexico. In Texas there is a city named Texas and a notation concerning the death of the explorer La Salle. Excellent detail, particularly of the Jesuit missions in Mexico and the Southwest. In present day Arizona, the Gila River is named Rio de los Apostolos. Filled with place names and Indian villages.
Overall very good with a couple of very insignificant spots.
