Carte General de la Caroline Dresse sur les Memoires le Plus Nouveaux Par Le Sieua S***
Amsterdam, 1730. No Binding. Fine. 22 ¼ x 18 ¼ inches. Full original color; fine. A superb, original color example of the first map of the Carolinas published outside of England. Though Mortier credited the map to Sanson, it was in fact closely derived from an English map, the extremely rare, separately issued "A New Map of CAROLINA" published by Thornton, Morden and Lea in 1685. Charleston is noted at its location on the Ashley and Cooper Rivers, both on the map and in an inset showing Charles Towne and the nearby plantations. Burden calls this edition of the map "very rare." Cumming 120; Burden 767, State 2.
