Father Kino's important map was the first map to accurately depict the region, in particular the relative positions of the Colorado and Gila rivers and the correct localization of the rivers, valleys and mountains of part of Sonora and Arizona. Kino's map, first published in 1705, was intended to disprove the California as an Island theory, but instead actually fueled the controversy and thus the map was reprinted many times. This is a later edition, with a few minor changes in the map. An essential map to any collection of California or the American Southwest.
