Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map


Maker: Jaillot.

Antique hand colored map of North America by Jaillot, 1694. Highly desirable and collectible early map of North America with California as an island and Quivira. Quivira was one of the reported Seven Cities of Gold that drove many people to search North America for these cities and their riches. On this map French Canada extends as far south as Virginia/North Carolina, where it hits Florida, which in itself extends over the entire US south. New Mexico covers the entire west of the continent. Includes general areas of native peoples. This map is full of fascinating information that you can explore over time! Very good restored condition - has been archivally cleaned and backed with light-weight paper. Color may be later. Measures approx. 18.5 x 22.75 inches to the outer border line. **NOTE- because this map requires extra insurance for shipping, an additional charge will appear on your card after your original purchase. If you would like to know what that charge will be, please contact us.**
