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, or River of the Apostles. Filled with place names and Indian villages.
Very good impression. Light damp stain in upper, blank margin. Side margins slightly trimmed, but still generous.
