A fine large scale map of the eastern half of North America. This map displays some of the great geographic misconceptions of America that were held at the end of the 17th century. The Mississippi flows into the western Gulf of Mexico; An oddly shaped Great Lakes; A mountain range running from the Michigan peninsula into Florida. The inset map is of Boston Harbor. Overall, it is a very attractive map. Maps
