Antique Map of The Future United States and the Spanish Main -- Important Early Depiction of the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes

Fine example of Schenk's decorative map of the Southeastern part of North America, Gulf Coast and the Spanish Main, based upon Guillaume De L'Isle's landmark map of Mexico and Florida, first issued in 1703.

De L'Isle's map introduced the information from La Salle, Bienville, d'Iberville, and other French explorers in America. It was the first map to accurately portray the mouth of the Mississippi and the Great Lakes region. Also accurately shown for the first time are the English settlements on the east coast. The reports of d'Iberville are present in the villages in the Lower Mississippi Valley and Texas, where the Spanish were active building missions and presidios.

Several Dutch and German cartographers, including Schenk, Seutter and J.B. Homann, copied De L'Isle's work, but added significant decorative features and revisions.

The tracks of the Spanish Galleons and routes to Havana are shown.
