Publication Note: This group of maps appears in Collot's "Journey in North America..." They are some of the earliest maps of the Ohio River valley (in great detail) and the Mississippi River valley. Sabin notes: "This work was printed both in French and English, but not published, at the time of General Collot's death, which happened in 1805. More than twenty years afterwards, the whole impression came into the hands of M. Bertrand...The journey was undertaken in 1796, at the request of Adet..." The work was published in 1826, but engraved and printed in 1805 based on a journey in 1796. The strange delay in publishing is explained best in Wagner Camp. The atlas and two text volumes are superlatively rare (Howes "dd", Eberstadt: "extraordinarily rare").
