This glorious map is embellished with an elegant border and a bold, imposing title cartouche in top right corner and a smaller oval cartouche in bottom left corner containing nine lines of Latin text. Natural topography is clearly delineated with the relief shown pictorially. Charming details include a couple of sailing ships, a large flying fish and two warriors in their tented camps. This beautiful and important map, still showing California as a peninsula, was much copied by other cartographers.

Size: 470 x 350 mm. Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition.
