DANET, Guillaume.

L'Amerique Meridionale et Septentrionale...
Paris: L.C. Desnos, 1760. Original colour. 480 x 690mm.

Centre fold restored, printer's crease in bottom border.

Map of the Americas decorated with a large baroque title cartouche and a decorative border containing roundel portraits and the signs of the zodiac. In the north west is the fictitious 'Mer de l'Ouest' with a presumed channel leading to Hudson Bay. Bottom right is an inset showing the supposed Russian discoveries in the North Pacific as reported by Joseph de l'Isle.

The map was only occasionally published in composite atlases and is therefore quite scarce.
