Based largely on the earlier maps of Sanson and Duval, this map of the southern United States provides good detail from the Mississippi Valley to Florida. It retains the spurious May Lake and an incorrect location and course of the Mississippi River. Florida is Tegesta. St. Augustine and St. Mathieu are named along the eastern coast of Florida. A drape style title cartouche adorns the map. French text on verso.

Crisp impression and nice coloring. Image is fine but margins have a little toning and staining.
