Antique hand colored map of parts of North and Central America by Homann, 1715. Wonderful early map of the Americas produced during the Spanish War of Succession, which directly impacted the ownership of the Louisiana Territory. There are numerous elements of interest throughout this map. In Nova Mexico, the apocryphal kingdoms of gold, Quivara and Teguayo are included. In the British Colonies, New York (Manhata) and other early settlements on Long Island, including Bedford and Southampton are labeled. The Carolinas feature old borders and include the 'Deserta Arenosa' (Deserta Akenatzy). Also depicted is the imagined 'Great Lake of the Southeast', labeled Matiqui, west of the Appalachians. Another speculative lake is shown further west, supposed to be the source of the Apalachicola River. A large vignette depicts native peoples filling the Europeans' wooden chests with gold while a smaller vignette shows a battle at sea. Decorative cartouche. Some coloring may be later. Good condition with some minor stains and foxing. Approx. 18.5 x 22 inches to the neatline. Priced as framed. Price is lower for unframed map- please contact us for more information. CSMTAW
