¤ Ensemble de 2 cartes (N° 163 et 164) représentant la Californie et publiées dans l"Encyclopédie" de Diderot. La carte N°164, gravée par Vaugondy, est constituée de 5 cartes représentant l'évolution de la cartographie de la Californie jusqu'en 1767.
- Five maps on one sheet, showing the development of the mapping of California. The map is from Diderot's "Encyclopedie" which contains ten maps of America, Asia and the Arctic Regions. The five maps, engraved by Robert de Vaugondy, are:
I. Mathieu Necrou Pecci's map of 1604 showing California as a peninsula and delineating the journey of Sebastian Vizcaino, 1602-3.
II. The central map, that of Sanson, 1656, showing California as an island.
III. De l'Isle's map of 1700 where he manages to show California as neither an island nor a part of the continent. IV. Father Kino's epoch-making map of 1705 which was finally to decide De L'Isle as to California being a peninsula and, through him, to influence all other cartographers.
V. The Jesuit Missions map of 1767 which is an update of Father Kino's map. / Diderot's famous 2 on 1 map showing the two early mappings of the west coast of North America, the first after Visscher, the second after Plancius' World map. Both show the Straits of Anian, Quivera, Baja and a similarly projected east-west coastline. The larger map includes more detail along the coastline and in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, as well as a truer orientation of Baja California. Diderot's map were one of the first surveys of comparative cartography, tackling a number of the early misconceptions of the west coast of North America and the North-eastern Asian Coastline. - Schwartz & Ehrenberg, plate 76.
