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.
