This unusual and scarce map of North America was engraved by Filloeul (Pierre?) as indicated in the lower left corner of the map. It shows the English colonies confined to a narrow strip along the Atlantic Ocean with the Appalachian mountains nearly surrounding Virginia. To its west is a large Floride with the Mississippi River drawn too far to the west. Beyond the Mississippi River is Spanish-controlled New Mexico and a peninsular California. The Pacific Northwest is virtually blank.


Condition: A

A nice impression with light toning, faint offsetting, and a few spots of foxing.

Estimate: $275 - $350

Sold for: $240
