Stricking and hightly detailed copper engraved reduced edition after Seutter's larger chart covering the whole North America, showing California as an Island, based upon the second Sanson Model. California is narrowed in the center, based upon a theory advanced by Father Luis Velarde. Interesting vertical projection. Many place names throughout.
In very good condition.
