#930.  North America 1809. (sold)



from "Methode abregee et facile pour apprendre la Geographie" dedicated to Mme Crozat. The Vaugondy family produced a large number of atlases from about 1740 to the end of the century. They allowed their maps to be 'licensed' by other publishers, none more obviously so than in the many editions of 'Methode abregee et facile pour apprendre la Geographie' dedicated to Mme Crozat. These went through many editions from about 1755 until well into the 1800's. The editions in the 1700s all used Vaugondy maps, often dated 1755, but issued into the 1780's.
New maps were engraved for the early 19th century editions of 'Methode Abregee et Facile pour Apprendre la Geographie', and this map of North America is from the 1809 edition.  Interestingly enough, despite the explorations of Cook, La Perouse and Vancouver, the cartographer has chosen to leave out the whole of the Pacific coast north of California. The United States stops at the Mississippi and does not reflect the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.
