Copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. This famous map of the Southeast of North America was published in J. B. Homann´s famous printing house in Nürnberg after the cartographic sources by G. de Isle in 1703 and is also based on the explorations by La Salle. The map is ornated with highly decorative allegories on the Spanish exploration in the West Indies and New Mexico. In the upper left corner the engraved title in the allegoric title cartouche with the engraved 'privilegium' (second state, Louisiana is now named 'Ludoviciana' instead of 'Florida' from the first state). The map itself provides a very good information on many place names, rivers, mountains and lakes.
