Issued (likely) c. 1797, London by Dilly.
Late 18th Century engraved map with lovely hand color.
Very interesting map which names the mythical kingdom of Quivira. Also names Teguayo and New Albion (for California), and also names a long "River of the West" which seems to connect to the mouth of the Mississippi..
Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
