    • Abstract:
      "Important 18th Century wall map of America, one of the earliest obtainable printed maps to show the Sea or Bay of the West and the earliest wall map of America to show this configuration. The map is oriented with east at the top, one of only a few maps to present America in this configuration and unquestionably the largest and most decorative...The map is surrounded by decorative vignettes which depict important events in American History. 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."
