Outstanding decorative map of the southeast, based on the Mercator/Hondius prototype. Much of the geography is based the accounts of John Lederer, who described large interior lakes, an area of savanna at the foot of the "Apalatcy Montes", and a desert region. The map is beautifully engraved with a large pictorial title cartouche depicting the landing of Europeans and a battle scene with the natives. Ref: Cummings (SE) #143. Soft extra fold, else very fine with crisp impression.
