Carte de la Louisiane ou des voyages du Sr. De La Salle

The title of this 1684 map translates as “Map of Louisiana, or the Voyages of the Sieur de La Salle.” Although La Salle successfully explored the Mississippi River from the Illinois River to the Gulf of Mexico, the map mistakenly places the mouth of the Mississippi in present-day Texas.
