This is a large and extraordinarily detailed map of the French claims in what is present-day United States and Canada. Inset maps show the Mississippi and Mobile rivers. Originally sold in England, 1720. Notice that Nevada, Utah and much of the rest of the West is labeled as, "Parts Unknown," and that California is an island.
