Description

Paris; Similar to Spalding 47, this very small map was first published in La Geographie Francoise in 1659, a popular little atlas. The heading La Virginie et les Isles Bermudes, and an unrefined inset of the island of Bermuda appear in the upper right. Duval was a nephew and a pupil of Nicolas Sanson, from whose work he derived this map. --From This New Founde Lande: The Henry & Kaye Spalding Map Collection at Hampden-Sydney College, 2008.
