1770 – T. C. Lotter – America Septentrionalis
Title: “America Septentrionalis Concinnata juxta Observationes . . .”
Very nice map of the North America, it shows California as an island, after the foundation map by de L’Isle published in 1700, which was the first map to reconnect California to the mainland. The tracks of a number of explorers routes are shown along the west coast.
Cartographer: Tobias Conrad Lotter ( 1717 – 1777 )
Sheet size: 54,0 x 67,5 cm

Very good condition! Paper with map maker’s watermark. Split in lower center fold margin, reinforced, does not reach the image.
This is a genuine antique map published in 1770 and not a modern copy or reprint!
