The first printed map to show Texas
The first printed map to show TexasGuillaume De L'Isle.
Carte de la Louisiana et du Cours du Mississippi Avec Les Colonies Anglaises.
Paris, Dezauche, c.1782. 495 x 655mm. Coloured. First issued in 1718, this map was the first printed map to show Texas ('Mission de los Teijas etablie en 1716'), and the first to depict the routes of the early explorers like De Soto in 1539-40. This final state has been updated to show the boundaries of the British Colonies, a year before Britain recognised their independence in 1783. Also of interest is the depiction of Florida as an archipelago rather than a peninsula.
