Original old colored engraved map.

Very rare first state of Delisle’s important map of Louisiana, depicted before the addition of New Orleans. It is the first map to name Texas (Teijas). Delisle’s map of Louisiana became the primary reference source for the Lower Mississippi and Lower Missouri river valleys and was used by other cartographers as late as 1797. This map is believed to be the oldest consulted in the planning of the Lewis and Clark expedition.
