Descripción:

Engraved map, outline hand-color, 11 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches on sheet size13 3/4 x 10 1/4 inches. Faint scattered foxing, otherwise very good condition. An unusual and particularly attractive antique map of the North and South American continents featuring a vignette illustration "Cascade of Regla, near Mexico" at lower left corner. The map is undated, but depicts North America and the United States prior to the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. The formation of the Northwest coast of America reflects the discoveries of Captain James Cook's Third Voyage of the late 1770s, but inland "New Albion" and "New Navarra" show no significant features reported by late 18th century explorations: there is, for example, no Columbia River. The dates of James Wyld the Elder, 1790-1836, suggest that the map was published no earlier than some time after the Louisiana Purchase, reflecting the not uncommon delay in disseminating geographical knowledge, as new information took time to reach British mapmakers and publishers and be reflected in the maps produced. The map is marked plate XXXVII at upper right. N° de ref. de la librería
