Guillaume Deslile

Deslile was the leading French Cartographer in the early eighteenth century.  He was noted for his prolific production and exceptional accuracy.  His influential Atlas Nouveau was published around 1700.  He was appointed Premier Géographe du Roi in 1718, the same year that he published his masterwork on Louisiana (see 1718).  This was Deslile’s first map relating to North American and it has been widely heralded as the first printed map to revert to the correct peninsular form for California, and the first to show Iberville’s 1699 discoveries and settlements along the Gulf Coast.  The river shown as La Maligne is the earliest, non-Native American name for the Brazos Rivert.  This map was re-issued in Amsterdam by Covens & Mortier in 1730.

CARTE DU MEXIQUE ET DE LA FLORIDE

The shift of the center of the map trade from Amsterdam to Paris begun by Nicolas Sanson was completed by Guillaume Deslile, who elevated France from a competitive to a dominant position.  Known for the spare and clean appearance of his maps, Deslile has been cited as the first truly scientific cartographer.  His maps were widely copied in the commercial workshops of Paris, Amsterdam, and the rest of Europe.

Guíllame Deslile used the most current reports from French explorers and travelers in creating his maps.  His 1703 map stands as a landmark in cartographic achievement.  It was the first printed map to accurately portray the mouth and course of the Mississippi River.  Delisle’s later 1718 map would include a notation along the Trinity River: “mission de los Tiejas, establie 1716.”  Referring to the earliest of the Spanish missions in East Texas, the phrase marked the first appearance of a form of the name Texas to appear on a printed map.

Nicolas de Fer

As the official geographer of France’s royal family, de Fer was primarily interested in showing the progress the French were making in exploring their vast claim in North American, particularly the penetrations of Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle, who had been grossly misled by Coronelli’s misplacement of the Mississippi River (see 1688-1695).  The large cartouche in the upper right corner of this map exhibits much more interest in ornamentation than earlier French maps.  Although de Fer contributed little new information on the Texas coastline or its interior, this map documented the knowledge of French officialdom of the areas claimed as part of Louisiana, adding to the increasing fear and resentment by Spain over French encroachment.

GUILLEUME DESLILE
CARTE DE LA LOUISIANE ET DU COURS DU
MISSISSIPI DRESSEE SUR UN GRAND NOMBRE
DE MEMOIRES ENTRAU TRES SUR CEAUX DE MR. LE MAIRE, 1718

This landmark map is generally regarded as the mother map and primary source for all later maps of the Mississippi Valley system, and is the first map – in second state – to show New Orleans.  It was quickly copied and widely referred to.  It is the first to accurately chart the course of the lower Mississippi and to incorporate information from the expeditions of de Soto (1539-1540), Moscoso (1542), Cavelier (1687), de Tonty (1702), and de. St. Denis (1713 and 1716).  It is also the first to use the name “Texas,” (Mission de los Tiejas).  Across the upper Texas coast, de l’Isle conforms to the European concept of Indians as inferior (and therefore ripe for conquest), by writing, in translation: “Wandering and cannibalistic Indians.”  Galveston Bay is shown with the first reference to the Judosa (Deadose) tribe on the east side of Galveston Bay, near the site of the future (1756) Spanish fort at Orcoquisac, near present-day Anahuac, built to guard against French intrusions.

The eighteenth century witnessed a revival of cartographic activity in Germany.  The most important and prolific German mapmakers of the era were Homann family, whose founder and principal member, Jean Baptiste, established headquarters at Nuremberg in 1702.  The family quickly dominated the market.  The map above, based on earlier maps by Guillaeme Deslile and Louis de Hennepin, represented a great improvement over maps published in the early eighteenth century.

MATTHÄUS SEUTTER

Georg Matthaus Seutter

Matthäus Seutter was one of the most prominent and prolific German mapmakers in the eighteenth century.  His contributions include publication of Atlas Novus in Vienna in 1730, a General Atlas about 1736, and an Atlas Minor in 1744.

The map above, published in 1730, relied heavily on Delisle’s 1703 Carte du Mexique et de la Floride.  In contrast to Delisle, who presented America simply and straightforwardly, Seutter followed the German baroque style.  The heavy ornamentation and cartouches are features typically found in German maps of the era.

AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE

Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d’Anville

Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d’Anville

Following the death of Guillaume Deslile in 1726, the line of progressive French cartographers which had begun in the previous century with Nicolas Sanson, continued in the person of Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d’Anville.  Throughout a long and productive career, d’Anville set new standards in scholarship and accuracy, and his exacting standards brought him recognition as the finest cartographer of his age.

D’Anville’s map of North America reflected a definite advance in geographical knowledge about the continent.  In its depiction of Texas, the map followed the work of Delisle by including the ranges of many Indian tribes and the locations of their villages.  The map also plots with a high degree of accuracy the burgeoning English colonization efforts along the eastern seaboard.

SECRETARIA DEL ESTADO Y DE LA MARINA
CARTA ESFERICA QUE COMPREHENDE
LAS COSTAS DEL SEÑO MEXICANO

In 1793, the interim governor of Spanish Louisiana, Bernardo de Gálvez, commissioned José Antonio de Evia to explore and map the entire northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  Evia’s charts and sketches formed the basis of a new map, which became the prototype for maps of the Gulf.

Carta Esferica was the first large-scale printed chart of the Texas coast based on actual soundings and explorations.  It showed the mouths and lower courses of six of the seven major rivers of Texas and provided detailed soundings of all the coastal waterways.  The continued significance of this map is perhaps best indicated by the fact that nearly twenty years after its publication, the first president of the Republic of Mexico, Guadalupe Victoria, ordered an exact copy printed and distributed.
