Amsterdam: [circa 1710]. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. 20 1/2 x 24 1/4 inches. Highly decorative Dutch derivative of De l'Isle's monumental 1703 mapping: this copy a dark impression with beautiful full period colour. Despite the title, this map covers a large portion of North America, from the Great Lakes in the north, through the Caribbean to Panama in the south, with Delisle's excellent depiction of the Mississippi River Valley. The Southwest shows missions and native villages, including Acoma, as well as Taos, Santa Fe, and Casas Grandes. Schenk has added a vignette off the Pacific coast of Central America, reflecting the wealth of the region with an elaborate sea battle between Spanish and French forces and a scene of buccaneers unloading a treasure chest. The routes of the Spanish galleons are shown throughout the Caribbean. Martin & Martin, Maps of Texas and the Southwest p. 93 and plate 16; Wheat Mapping the Transmississippi West 107; Lowery 198.
