Many place names on the Pacific coast of California, but none on the eastern side. Thanks to distribution by a major Dutch publisher this map influenced the debate on California's insularity. A large "Lac des Iroquois" is an indication of the Great Lakes. The map names "Real de Nueva Mexico" (Santa Fe). Very attractive with many animals in the interior, ships and sea monsters in the ocean. State 2 with Jansson's name in the cartouche at lower left.
