        "Amerique Septentrionale" from Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde

      Paris, 1650. THE FIRST MAP TO DEPICT ALL FIVE GREAT LAKES The first map to depict all five Great Lakes Engraving with original outline color: 175/8" x 231/4" References: Louis C. Karpinski, Maps of Famous Cartographers Depicting North America (Amsterdam, 1977), 89, Plate VIII; Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), Plate 61; Phillip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 375-377. A leading exemplar of the French school of seventeenth-century cartography, Nicolas Sanson is widely regarded as the founder of modern geography and it is generally held that the so-called "Great Age" of French cartography originated with his publications. This exquisite, hand-colored map of America is a prime example of Sanson's cartographic mastery. "Amerique Septentrionale" was first published in 1650 and was a monumental production in that it was the first map ever to illustrate the five great lakes in recognizable form. French explorers were the most active in North America, during the seventeenth century, and this map is the most exact and up-to-date record of their activities in the continent's interior. It is the first printed map to depict the complete extent of Jesuit exploration and mapping, and for Canada, represents the first major advance on Champlain's map of 1632. In keeping with the geographical theories of the period, Sanson's map shows California as an island. This common misconception was not officially disproved until 1747. In this version of "Amerique Septentrionale," California is depicted with a flat northern coast. Sanson chose to include forty-one place names along California's western coast, four of which had not been depicted by other cartographers - C. de Fortune, C. de Pios, C. de S Martin and C. de Galera. Sanson also inserted Santa Fe as capital of New Mexico and introduced the words Apache and Navajo on the north-west coast of the continent for the first time. Nicolas Sanson was born in Abeville, a town in the Picardy region of France. As a young adult Sanson was a fervent historian, focusing his studies particularly on the ancient world. Many have hypothesized that Sanson turned to cartography simply as a way of illustrating his work on ancient history. Whatever his motivations for pursuing a career in map-publication, Sanson was undoubtedly the most prolific French cartographer during the reign of Louis XIV and as a result he was appointed Géographe Ordinaire du Roi in 1630. He also served as a private geography tutor to the King.. Book.
