Title:

La Floride Divisée en FLORIDE et CAROLINE

Cartographer:

de Vaugondy, Robert 1(1726-1786)/p>

Summary:

The Floride Peninsula is mostly islands at its southern tip. Tampa is labeled on the B. du S. Espril and many rivers are named. Floride extends north to the R. Altamaha thus giving it a northerly bulge inland. The northeastern border has a very narrow Georgia and a large Carolina above it. The western border is just west of B. de Pensacola. The name Muspa at the southwest tip refers to a Calusa Indian Chief and settlement as described by Fontaneda in 1595.
