Beautiful early map of Florida and Georgia, western Louisiana, southern parts of the Carolinas and the Bahamas, circa 1798. The interior of Florida was not yet mapped with distortions to Baie du St. Espirit. Pierre Francois Tardieu (1711-1771) came from a family of engravers and map makers based in Paris. This map was engraved by Jean Emmanuel Jerome Vallet. Hard to find.
