16 1/2″ x 21″ sight size. 18″ x 22 1/2″ overall. Original map of France on laid (rag) paper. Centered on Cambray and showing Crevecoeur, Bouchain, Castel de Cambresis, Quesnoy, etc. Two coats of arms and two cartouches in the four corners. Dedicated to Francisco Vander Burgh. Fully hand colored coats of arms, with the rest lightly colored. Verso is affixed a letter of authentication from Dr. Dard Hunter of the museum of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, dated May 21, 1953, in which Dr. Hunter surmises the map to be from the Blaeu Novus Atlas of 1676. However, I believe it is probably from the Novus Atlas published around 1640. There is an obvious center crease where it would have been folded in the atlas. Some water stains and age discoloration (visible in the images). Some very mior wrinkling. A FINE EXAMPLE OF AN EXQUISITELY EARLY AND RARE EUROPEAN MAP.

Antique Map of De Lisle Carte Du Canada and New France Amsterdam Circa 1730

Matted, glazed and framed. This is in fine condition. Delisle’s map first appeared in 1703. The Covens firm did not begin until the late 1720′s. First issued in 1703, thus richly detailed map provides the most accurate rendering of the Great Lakes of the time, with the lakes fully enclosed and properly placed in longitude and latitude. Delisle’s map of Canada and the Great Lakes is one of the most outstanding and influential maps of the eighteenth century. Detroit marks it debut on this map, only two years after it’s founding. Delisle’s cartography is very meticulous and adds new information from Joliet, Franquelin, and the Jesuit explorers. It correctly positions the Ohio River but confuses it name with Wabash River. West of the Mississippi Lahontan’s fictitious Riviera Longue is prominently depicted. In Canada special attention is given to the rivers and Lakes between Hudson Bay and St Lawrence, and Lac de Assenipoils (Lake Winnipeg) connects to Hudson Bay. Sanson’s three islands of the Arctic are retained. The exquisite cartouche with the beaver, natives, priest and friars, was engraved by Guerard. This is the second state of the map and remains essentially unchanged from the first edition. This 1730 issue by Covens and Mortier, described by Tooley as re-engraved by a close copy of the original, is about 7.5 cm narrower than the 1703 edition. This hung in my grandparents home in France back in the early 1930′s. Visit my page for more Vintage and Antique items.
