1790 – G. de L’ISLE – Carte d’Amérique
Title: “Carte d’Amérique Dressée pour l’instruction, Par Guill. Delisle et Phil. Buache Premiers Géographes de l’Académie des Sciences Nouvellement Revue, Augmentéeet Assujettie aux N.les Observations Astronomiques de M.rs de l’Académie des Sciences. Par Dezauche Géographe … 1790.”
Dezauche’s revision of the De l’Isle/Buache map of North and South America which first came out in 1722. The map reflects the political changes in France.
The map has the inset continuation of the N.W. coast corrected according to Capt. Cook’s discoveries. “I.de Quadra et Vancouver”, “Nootka”, “Nouvel Hanovre”, “Nouveau Cornouailles” are added. Also many names are added in the northern regions.
The King’s name is removed from the title and De l’Isle and Buache are referred to as First Geographers to the Academy of Science, rather than the King. Buache must have used the information from the charts in “Neptune des cotes occidentales d’Amerique sur le Grand Ocean.”
This volume 7 of ‘Neptune Francois’ and forms an extensive atlas of charts of the western coasts of North and South America.
