Coronelli Map of Louisiana, 1696
Item Details
Description
[America, Louisiana]
CORONELLI, Vincenzo (1650-1718).
La Louisiana, Parte Settentrionalle, Scoperta Sotto la Protettione di Luigi XIV, Re di Francia, etc. Descritta, e Dedicata...
Engraved map.
Venice, c.1696, From the Atlante Veneto.
10 1/4" x 16 1/2" sheet.

Comparable: Old World Auction, 2018 - $4,600.

The most famous and meritorious globe-maker of his time, Coronelli also produced distinguished atlases and maps. His depiction of the Great Lakes, notable examples of his abilities, receive the highest praise from Karpinski. The map reflects a careful study of Jaillot, Marquette, Hennepin and the Jesuit Relation map of Lake Superior (1672) (Karpinski, p. 117). R. de Chekagou is shown at the location of present-day Chicago. Lake Superior is shown very accurately, naming the Keweenaw Peninsula (P. Kioanan) and locating Isle Royale (I. Miniong). It does not show the fictitious islands that begin with Bellin later in the 18th century. The map is filled with scenes of natives drying fish, hanging around in hammocks, and an incongruent scene of an alligator swallowing a native.

Coronelli's map of Louisiana focuses more closely on the Great Lakes than any of his other maps, and was exceedingly influential in its time. It was the most important depiction of the Great Lakes of the late 17th Century. (Burden #701; Kershaw #163; Karpinski (MI) p. 117).
