Defenders Amérique

1771 Western Hemisphere Map

17" x 22"

Map Origin: By: Louis Brion de la Tour / Louis Desnos, Atlas General méthodique et élémentaire, pour l'étude de la géographie et de l'histoire moderne, Paris

Note: A remarkable map of the Americas, North and South, showing ten or more Great Lakes, with a very approximate representation of the north western coast of North America. The claim by other French cartographers of the existence of a Great inland "Sea Of The West" is reflected in the comment "C'est dans cette partie que l'on place la Mer de L'Ouest incertaine." ‘Sea of the West’ is located in this region.
