One of a kind, Hand-Painted of Les Etats Unis French Fur Trade Era Map

L'Amerique Septentrionale
Partie Occidentale
Par (by) M. BONNE Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine.

All French, good detail from Lac Superieur to the mouths of the Mississippi. To south, it shows Ft. de la Pointe Coupee, R. Rouge, Ft. des Natches, Ft. St. Pierre and mentions Ft. Rosalie without the usual annotation that the Fort was destroyed (seen in our maps dated 1756 or later).

In the north it shows a very large Lac Rouge, Saute St. Antoine (St. Anthony Falls), Fort St. Nicolas near the Ouisconsing (Wisconsin) R. and etc.

Good detail on Fort S. Philippe, Cahokias, and several lead mines in the Ste. Genevieve area. Good detail on the Ohio River and it's tributaries. Good detail of the Apalachian Mountains, Georgie, Cherokee country, etc.

More detail East of the Mississippi than West (although there is good detail for inland Minnesota). Unlike any other map, it shows the Mississippi going towards inland Minnesota and notes that the source is UNKNOWN.

For detail of the upper River, Minnesota, and east to Michigan and the Appalachian mountains, these maps are my favorites.

Hand painted and numbered by artist Lisa Middleton.
This item is sold without frame.

This is a hand painted reproduction of a truly historical map. it's original state was black and white, yellowed with age and possibly torn or creased. I copy the original and clean it up so I can paint it and then re-distress it so it looks antiquated. It is bursting with all the color and character. It is easy to read and suitable for the office or living room.
Maps make great gifts and memories.
This is a beautiful Map in French. It's the first map to call the US "United States" and indicates the Native American tribes along the Mississippi River.
Also available as an 11x14" Easy to frame print for $24.95. Contact Lisa for details.
