Carte d'Amerique, Dressee pour l'instruction.


A superb Americas map, with a small Brazil separated from the "Pays des Amazones," and a recently independent United States extending to the Mississippi. There is excellent topograph-ical detail up to but not including the Pacific Northwest, which is largely devoid of interior detail. A small inset map shows the emerging coastline of Alaska, reflecting the discoveries of Captain Cook. The map features two decorative cartouches: a smaller one with a note on the map's projection, and the lovely wreath and ribbon laden title cartouche.
