Amplissimae Regionis Mississipi Seu Provinciae Ludovicianae A R.P. Ludovico Hennepin Francisc. Miss. In America Septentrionali Anno 1687...


[ca 1720) | 60.4 x 53.1 cm | one map
First edition of this well-margined map, copper engraved and heightened in colors by a contemporary hand.
A few dampstains and marginal tears.
wo very nice cartouches, one showing Niagara falls surmounted by the frontis title enclosed by Father Hennepin - a missionary explorer - and allegorical figures of the New World, the other showing a bison surrounded by a Native American family.
he routes of the first explorers are marked, as well as the Native American tribes and peoples, Catholic missions, fortifications, boat links, and first settlements. The south of Florida is shown as an archipelago and labeled «Cannibals».
One can also see Long Island, labeled «Île Longue», which appears disproportionate, as well as a little island, the ancestor of Manhattan.
A very good copy of this map of Louisiana, the work of Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) - one of the most famous mapmakers and the founder of one of the most important German publishing houses.
