                  Item Number: 1970:02007.36                              Date of map: 1790

Title: Carta geografica della Florida dell America settentrionale [map of Florida: the southeastern portion of the present day United States; but it includes much of the Southwest also]                 Height (inches): 13.7                   Width (inches): 17.5

   This map, ca. 1790, shows locations of ethnic groups and communities, and mentions some navigational aids.  The title of this map is misleading, as the area shown includes much of southwestern present U.S.; it would more properly be called a map of "Florida," i.e. the region extending from Florida towards southwestern North America.  The Gulf of Mexico is not labeled.  Illustrations of animals, plants and people are in the margins.  Conical projection.
