A fine and rare map of California by prominent cartographer Kino. The map is a faithful description of the results of nine expeditions Kino made in northwestern Mexico and the Colorado River. This is the first map that includes California within North America, as earlier maps described California as an island separate from the continent. Eusebio Francisco Kino, (1645 ? 1711) was a Jesuit priest from a town which is now a part of northern Italy. For the last 24 years of his life he worked in the region then known as the Pimería Alta, modern-day Sonora in Mexico and southern Arizona. He explored the region and worked with the indigenous Native American population, including primarily the Sobaipuri and other Upper Piman groups. https://www.raremaps.com/gallery/detail/33658gm/Tabula_Californiae_Anno_1702_Ex_autoptica_observatione_delineata_a_RP/Kino.html, Size : 369x233 (mm), 14.53x9.17 (Inches), Black & White, 0.
