La Californie ou Nouvelle Caroline, Teatro De Los Trabajos Apostolicos De Compa. E. Jusus En Americae Septe
By: Nicolas De Fer
Date: 1720 (dated) Paris
Original Size: 18 x 26 inches (45.75 x 66 cm)
This is a beautiful Vintage Map Shop reproduction of an important and famous map published in 1720 by Nicolas de Fer. Fer’s large-format map of the Island of California is the largest separate representation of the so-called island on a printed map. It is essentially a dramatically enlarged edition of de Fer's map of 1700, derived directly from information provided by Fra Kino, who had by then the myth of California as an island.
The title cartouche includes a rather detailed account of California up to 1695, and is embellished by a number of finely drawn figures of indigenous peoples. The scale cartouche in the lower left quadrant is also decorative, with flora and fauna of the region.
The original is an extremely scarce and highly-sought after map which appears on the market infrequently.
