List No 10402.010
Note A rare and important map of California in five different states, ranging from roughly 1656 to 1767. Engraved by the important French cartographer Robert De Vaugondy, for the c. 1770 edition of the Denis Diderot (1713-84) Encyclopedie . This map explores the confused state of California cartography in the late 18th century. Examines the gradual discovery of California through various seminal mappings. Initially uses the work of Italian cartographer Matheau Neron Pecci (1604) which correctly presumed that the main body of California extended southward into a peninsula. The next map illustrated, by N. Sanson in 1656, displays in insular California. Map no. III, by Guillaume de L'Isle (1700) reattaches California to the mainland, returning to the early peninsular theory. Next, Vaugondy exhibits part of the seminal Kino Map. This map, rendered by a Jesuit missionary c. 1705 was the work that finally disproved the California Insular theory. Father Franz Kino walked this region between 1698 and 1701. The final map, produced by unnamed Jesuits c. 1767 is a somewhat accurate depiction of the Baja California peninsula. These maps all predate the discoveries of Captain Cook’s voyages and hence Diderot’s work was as much speculative as historical. A fine example of an essential work for all serious California collections. This map is part of the 10 map series prepared by Vaugondy for the Supplement to Diderot’s Encyclopédie , of which this is plate 5. This seminal map series, exploring the mapping of North American and specifically the Northwest Passage was one of the first studies in comparative cartography.

List No 11734.000
Note Hand colored copper plate engraving map, first drawn by De L'Isle in St. Petersburg in 1737. This is the first edition of the landmark De L'Isle-Buache map of the North Pacific, exhibiting the recent Russian discoveries for the first time. At upper left and right: "Habitant de Kamchatka" and "Sauvage du N O de Louisiane." "Avertissement" at top right explains the projection. The chart includes the curve of the earth, with latitude lines radiating in an arc, making it possible to show more area. In the middle is an ornamental title cartouche. Map showing the northern hemisphere from Siberia in Asia to New France in North America, with the routes of discovery in the northern Pacific Ocean. A large sea is in the interior of North America. A series of lakes nearly connects Baffin’s Bay to the Mer du Sud, suggesting a Northwest Passage. To the north are glacial mountains while to the west are a series of archipelagoes and several large lakes. Further west, Russia appears well delineated, with the exception of a “Grande Terre” supposedly discovered by the Russians in 1723. Relief shown pictorially. Prime meridian is Paris. Map was made by two of the most important mapmakers of the mid-eighteenth century, Philippe Buache, Geographe du roi, geographer to the Academie Royale des Sciences and son-in-law of the famous geographer Guillaume De L’Isle, and Joseph Nicholas De L'Isle, astronomer, geographer, and brother to Guillaume. J. N. De L’Isle presented the map to the Academie Royale on April 8, 1750; it was printed in June of 1752. Joseph Nicholas De L'Isle spent much of his career in Russia, where he helped to found the Russian Academy of Sciences. While there, he had access to the latest findings of Russian explorers and was at the center of Russia’s geographic establishment; for example, he helped produce the first Russian atlas, the Atlas Russicus, with Ivan Kyrilov (see our 5825.000 and 11093.000). He returned to Paris in 1747 with a large map collection, an event that drew some criticism from Russian academicians who thought he absconded with delicate materials.

Note Appears to be derived from the John Mitchell Map of the British and French Dominions in North America, 1757 - see our 2842.000. This issue of the Amerique Septentrionale map has the title date changed from 1755 to 1763 in manuscript, and the French possessions are reduced to the Louisiana Territory and islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, which might indicate that it was manually updated to show the results of the conclusion of the French and Indian War in 1763. The map was first issued in 1755 and went through several states.

It is noteworthy for both its decorative quality and early depiction of the Sea or Bay of the West, as well as the curious east at the top projection, which may simply have been a convenience for making the map relatively uniform to the sizes of Longchamp's wall maps of Asia, Africa, and Europe."
