Scope and Contents

"Europeans had a more precise understanding of North America and the Caribbean by the early 18th century. Guillaume De L’Isle drew on earlier French expeditions into the continental interior to create the first accurate map of the Mississippi River. His use of color falsely implies fixed borders between competing European and indigenous peoples." -- Mapping the “New World”: Highlights from the Paul Schott Stevens Collection
