Carte de 'Amerique.
by Chatellain

Publisher Information:
N/P: N/P, 1720.

5 x 3.5 on a printed sheet 13 x 17. A charming little map of the Americas on a larger sheet of information about the New World. Four engravings show various councils probably dividing up the continents, and a series of charts describe the colonial governments. A text in French explains their workings. The map itself shows an (unnamed) island of California and across the straight is a large Nouveau Mexique. The rest of North America is divided into Canada, Floride, Virginie, and Nouvekle Holande. Far to the south, a purely speculative antarctic continent is suggested as Terre Inconnue. Center fold as issued, else very good. McLaughin 164.
