The map shows Lake Michigan and the land to the west as far as the Missisippi, showing the ‘Cascate S Antonio’, the waterfall on the present day site of Minneapolis. Antonio Zatta was one of the leading cartographers and publishers of the time, and his Atlante Novissimo was one of the most beautifully produced of 18th century atlases. He drew on the work of other cartographers- such as Captain Cook, for his maps of New Zealand and Australia, Robert de Vaugondy, Bellin, and developed his own distinctive elegant style.
