Description  
This map by its title that it was of America and dedicated and presented to His Majesty The Very Christian Louis XVI in 1740, tells you a great deal about the piece. Nolin set up the family publishing business in Paris, which was continued by his son of the same name. This map was earlier published and dedicated to Louis XV and all the decorative surrounds to the map are based on the latest observations at that time and the relationships between France and the Americas. Highly decorative and somewhat political, it shows ships from the French Navy and privateers covering both the Seas to the east and the Seas to the west of the Americas.
