Carte de l'Amerique Septentrionale


A beautfully designed and engraved map of North America in 1832, with Alaska still part of Russia (Russian America), the US/Canada border still unsettled, and Texas still part of Mexico, with independence still four years away. (Galveston Bay is named, but the city has yet to be founded.) The magnificent main map, with its wealth of place names and topographical details, is surrounded by five large insets: the Bering Sea, Jamaica, Cuba and Jamaica, Hispaniola, and Puerto Rico and the Lesser Antilles.
