Striking example of Homann’s map of the Course of the Mississipp River, based upon the reports of Hennepin, who explored the upper Mississippi and Great Lakes regions as a Jesuit Missionary in the late 1600s. The map, despite many errors, shows a number of explorer routes throughout the Southwest and Louisiana and annotations regarding various regions. Many Indian Tribes and early forts named. Florida is an archipelago. One of the most interesting and decorative regional maps of America from the period.
