L'Amerique Septentrionale, F. Delamarche 1785
Item Details
Description
  • Title: Etats-Unis De L'Amerique Septentrionale Avec Les Isles Royale, De Terre Neuve, De St. Jean, L'Acadie
  • Subject: United States/American Revolution
  • Maker: F. Delamarche
  • Date: 1785, Paris
  • Size: 18.75 x 24.75 inches

    Map of the United States. It depicts the 13 original states, but in addition presents the western boundaries of the country in an extremely fluid way, indicative of the rapidity with which the newly created country was expanding. Early iterations of Illinois and Indiana appear on the map, along with a somewhat indistinct presentation of the Northwest Territory. An inset key names the states along with their capitols, but also lists ten additional states proposed by Thomas Jefferson. The Delamarche family was a dominant force in both map and globe production in France from the late 18th to the latter part of the 19th century. Charles-Francois Delamarche (1740-1817), the founder of the family firm, was the successor of the great map and globe making family, the Robert De Vaugondys. Delamarche, in fact, seemed to have cornered the globe market in France by incorporating the stocks of Jean Fortin and Jean Lattre. Delamarche's son, Felix took over the firm upon his father's death and managed it until 1848, when Gosselin succeeded him. The firm continued well into the latter 19th century under yet another Delamarche descendent.
