This is a vintage reproduction of an authentic, antique map of North America by Alexis Hubert Jalliot. The original map was published in Paris circa 1692.

This is a spectacular early map of the North American continent with a focus on European possessions and Native American habitation. The map was originally created by the French map maker Nicolas Sanson in the mid-17th century. Jaillot succeeded Sanson's business and undertook the re-engraving and publishing of Sanson's maps and atlases. The Amsterdam publisher Mortier lived in Paris between 1681 and 1685 and was well acquainted with the Sanson/Jaillot maps.

Original color delineates the territories of the east coast as Nouvelle France, N.Angleterre, N.Suede, Virginie, Floride Francoise and Floride. The great lakes are shown to consist of 6 bodies of water with which Ontario is fed by a separate branch of the St. Laurence, and Erie is depicted as landlocked. A possible Northwest Passage is indicated through Button’s Bay and California is mapped as an island. In the west, a series of Indian tribes are shown to reside between two mountain ranges and along the “River of the North,” which is fed by a large nameless lake.

Adorning the map is a large, elaborate title cartouche flanked by indigenous warriors and surrounded flora and fauna found within the new world. Two other warriors rest on either side of a distance cartouche containing eight various mileage scales. Both cartouches boast exceptional original color and gold accents.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
