Father of Waters
Limited Edition Color Print
This reproduction of a
rare Mississippi River "ribbon map" was drawn by
Captain Willard Glazier to "prove" his premise that
the True Source of the Mississippi was Lake Glazier
rather than Lake Itasca. Looking for modern day
towns on an old map? Many modern-day towns are
included in this. It also contains many towns noted no
longer appear on maps, like Waterproof...which wasn't!

LES ETATS UNIS
(The United States)
Par (by) M. BONNE
Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine.
Gift Print Price: $36.00
All French, good detail from
Lac Superieur to the mouths of the Mississippi. To south,
it shows Ft. de la Pointe Coupee, R. Rouge, Ft. des
Natches, Ft. St. Pierre and mentions Ft. Rosalie without
the usual annotation that the Fort was destroyed (seen in
our maps dated 1756 or later).
In the north it shows a very
large Lac Rouge, Saute St. Antoine (St. Anthony Falls),
Fort St. Nicolas near the Ouisconsing (Wisconsin) R., etc.
Good detail on Fort S.
Philippe, Cahokias, and several lead mines in the Ste.
Genevieve area. Good detail on the Ohio River and it's
tributaries. Good detail of the Apalachian Mountains,
Georgie, Cherokee country, etc.
More detail East of the
Mississippi than West (although there is good detail for
inland Minnesota). Unlike any other map, it shows the
Mississippi going towards inland Minnesota and notes that
the source is UNKNOWN.
The maps are beautifully
hand-tinted in color and in brown tones. The print on the
smaller size is readable, but the larger size is much
easier to read.
For detail of the upper
River, Minnesota, and east to Michigan and the Appalachian
mountains, these maps are my favorites.
