Note 3 engraved colored in outline maps on 1 sheet. Showing the changes for the mapping of the Baja California peninsula. California according to Mathieu Neron Pecci╠łolen appears to the left of the sheet (scale 1:20,000); California according to Father Kino, the Jesuit missionary, is given to the right of the sheet (scale 1:6,000,000); part of California according to Guillaume De L'Isle (scale not given, but degrees of latitude shown) is given at the upper centre of the sheet. Kino's map definitively ended the myth of California as an Island. Kino was a jesuit Missionary, who surmised that California was not an island long before his trip to Mexico. When he arrived, he initially transmitted information back to Europe which found its way into Scherer's maps and De Fer's Cette Carte. After obtaining permission to travel up the Gulf of California and explore the region, Kino was able to establish his theory that California was not an island. The first edition of the map was printed in one of the volumes of the Jesuit reports Lettres Edifantes. It was reissued in a number of editions and languages thereafter, and is one of the landmark California maps, although a number of cartographers ignored the report for 20-30 years and continued to show California as an island. Above neat line at right: IX.e Carte pour la 3.e derniere Partie des Considerations. &c Page 71. Includes notes. Relief shown pictorially.
