   M-11684 - First year of the Official USA - 1783



M-11684 : (Image : 18 ¾ x 25 ½’’) “CARTE DU MEXIQUE ET DES ETATS UNIS D’AMERIQUE… ”  Guillaume De l’Isle. Paris:  J.A. Dezauche, c. 1783.  Important engraved map  with original outline color. Ref: Phillips #655; Martin & Martin pp 92-3 Tooley (Amer) p. 22 #53; Cumming (SE) #137.

This is the last issue of the famous De l’Iisle map of North America, considered the most important achievement for North American cartography.  This issue depicts the New United States of America with boundaries reflecting the 1783 Treaty of Paris - Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia extending eastward to the Mississippi River. Florida is divided into East and West Florida, and Indian villages and missions are noted throughout Texas and New Mexico.

Immediately following the American Revolutionary War, there was a rush to publish the most accurate up-to-date map featuring the newly recognized country. This map is among the first!
