Size of Map:

48.26 x 58.42 cm. approximately (19 X 23 in.)

Description:

A map of North America and the West Indies; originally published in 1750. After the Treaty of Paris recognized the United States in 1783, the map was ’corrected’ to that year, with the borders of the USA shown. This subsequent (and final) sixth state of the map dates from 1793, when the execution of Louis XVI meant that it was expedient for de Vaugondy’s official title ’Geographe Ordinaire du Roy’ to be removed from the plate.
