La Floride . . . 1657

First Edition of Sanson's Map of Florida and the Southern parts of North America

Striking example of Sanson's important early map of Florida and the Southeast, illustrating a number of early and important cartographic features.

The first atlas map to correctly name Lake Erie, although it is pushed 2.5 degrees too far south, increasing the claims of France. Several new rivers appear in Virginia. The Caroline depicted on the map is Ft. Caroline, not the Carolinas.

The projection of the Southeast is improved over Sanson's folio map of the prior year. The Florida nomenclature is corrected from Sanson's North America map. Most of the rest of the map is Chaves/Ortelius nomenclature. The Southwest is still largely unknown.

This is the first edition of the map, bearing the date of 1657.

Burden 326; Cumming 53.
