Attractive map covering the region from western 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. Engraved by Andre.
Couple of faint spots, still very good with a crisp impression.
