Jean Louis Daudet, Lyon, France, 1752. Approximately 31 x 40 in. On original wooden rollers. Unsurprisingly, the Caribbean, Eastern Seaboard, and California coasts are the most detailed and accurate, while the extremities north, south, and inland are less detailed, leading to some interesting cartographic fables. Bailleuls view of the Northwest Coast of America, includes the early appearance of the fabled. (Sea of the West) and. Presque Isle de Nord Ouest. (Peninsula of the Northwest) in the areas of present-day British Columbia and points north. Perhaps most remarkable is the presence of huge continent. (Southern Indies) in the South Atlantic Ocean. Decouverte par le Sr. Binot Paulmier en 1503. Referring to a widely-held belief that Binot Paulmier, an early 16. Century French explorer, was thought to have discovered Terra Australis. In 1503, Paulmier sailed for the East Indies but was blown off course by a storm. Despite his claims, as well as renewed interest a century later, Paulmier had made landfall on the coast of Brazil. Bailleuls map provides one of the largest and most ambitious depictions of the unknown southern continent by French geographers and historians. Bordered by 30 vignettes illustrating scenes from European discovery and colonization such as the Conquests of Peru and Mexico, the Discovery of America, Taking Possession of New France, Native Peoples of the North, and many others. Bailleul also provides the journeys of early explorers and circumnavigators. One such site, Drakes Beach. In present-day northern California, is the location where of Sir Francis Drake overhauled his ships before crossing the Pacific Ocean on his circumnavigation.
