This small and attractive map details 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. The map is filled with place names and Indian villages, particularly in present-day Arizona and New Mexico.
A nice impression with a printer's crease at bottom right and a hint of toning along the centerfold.
