1700 DELISLE MAP

$12.00

Reproduction of 1700 Delisle Map.

This extremely rare first edition map by Guillaume Delisle, one of the foremost geographers of his time, presents the areas of North America known in 1700. The incorrect delineation of the Mississippi River was based on information derived from LaSalle's expeditions, but Iberville's exploration of the Gulf Coast in 1699 and 1700 placed the river's true position. Upon learning this new information, Delisle issued a corrected second edition of the map. Only a handful of the first edition are known to exist, because most probably only a few were distributed before the corrected second edition made it obsolete.
