Senexs map of Louisiana closely follows the seminal map of 1718 by De L Isle, which was the first map to name Texas (Tejas).

The map extends west to the Rio Grande and provides and excellent depiction of Mississippi, Missouri and other major rivers and tributaries in the region, based upon contemporary knowledge. There are a number of annotations throughout the map, including notes on early exploration and settlement, Spanish trade with the Indians (Gold on the Upper Missouri) and early routes of the Spanish and French explorers in the region. Florida is depicted as an Archipelago. Many Indian Villages are shown, along with the Promiscuous Nations and Nations Destroyed. Chicagou appears on Lake Michigan. Many early mines and forts are depicted.View Item

Nice example of the John Senex edition of Christopher Brownes seminal map of the Chesapeake Bay, Delaware Bay, Virginia, Maryland and part of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, first issued in 1685.

Philadelphia appears on the map. The Northern and Eastern boundaries of Maryland are shown. The boundary for Delaware (then part of Pennsylvania) is shown favouring the claims of Lord Baltimore, rather than the Cape Henelopen boundary, which was finally ratified by the British Courts when the dispute was settled in the 1730s and finally mapped by Mason & Dixon several decades later.

The cartouche depicts tobacco and shellfish, two of the significant products of the region during colonial times. View Item
