    Relief shown pictorially.--Prime meridian: [Ferro].--Inset: Carte particuliere des embouchures de la Rivie. S. Louis et de la Mobile.--Karpinski, L. BibBibliography of the printed maps of Michigan 1804-1880, no. L. 46 x 63 cm.; 1 map, hand colored. This map is known for its detailed depiction of the states adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico region and the Mississippi River. It is also the first printed map to show a variant name for Texas (Teijas) and the land routes of many of the explorers of previous centuries. On the map, De L'Isle made assertions that Carolina was a possession of the French. This disturbed the English and was countered by Herman Moll's Map of North America According to ye Newest and most Exact Observations of 1720. References: Schwartz, Seymour I. And Ralph E.
