Carte D'Amerique Divisee ... / La America Dividada ... : J. B. L. Clouet

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Rare and very decorative wall map of the Americas, on four sheets joined, with parallel titles in French and Spanish, published by Mondare in Paris. The map exhibits many of the features typical of French theoretical cartography of the period. Prominent on the map is the large, fictitious, 'Mare de L'Ouest', the inland sea in the Pacific north west, following the 'discoveries' of de la Fuca, with an accompanying inset of the 'discoveries' of Admiral de la Fonte (Fuente) suggesting a sea-passage from the Pacific to the Atlantic through Arctic waters. The map is surrounded by small, but carefully engraved vignettes relating to the history of the Americas, depicting the existing Monarchies and Kingdoms, Columbus' landing, the discovery of Brasil, the exploration of the Mississippi, and the establishment of the colonies of New France, Virgina, Florida, and so on, each captioned in French and Spanish. There are, as often with large decorative wall maps, minor areas of damage and small areas of abrasion, all however well restored - the whole backed onto protective canvas backing. This is, nevertheless, an above average example.
