Image 10 of 20 | Image: 4185 | Size: 10684x14123px E170 - 1798 La Perouse San Francisco Bay

Title / Cartographer / year / source: Plan du Port de St. Francois / La Perouse / 1797 / Tom Paper collection, David Rumsey

Question: What are the parts of this bay we have discovered? This map was part of a series of maps made as a part of the expedition of La Perouse in 1786. 

Logic: The map is aligned a ship would enter this bay. 

System: Likely made with sightings and a compass, perhaps also an octant or sextant.

Estimation: Only attempted to show land and water, as well as Spanish names of key places.

Design: Hand drawn, engraved and printed in a book, original not colored - balanced, legend fills spot.

Iteration: One and done. La Perouse died later in the voyage. Map was not published until 1797, 11 years after the likely first draft.

Image 11 of 20 | Image: 4177 | Size: 6643x4677px E170 - 1833 San Francisco Bay Map by Beechey

Early seafaring explorers from Spain, France and England sailed their ships along the West coast of America and often past the entrance to San Francisco Bay because it was shrouded in fog. Originally settled by Ohlone-speaking Yelamu tribe, San Francisco would be mapped by Spanish explorer Don Gaspar de Portolá in 1769 and later become a Spanish colony in 1776, with missions established throughout the area. Once the Bay had been properly explored and mapped out for navigation, Europeans began to settle within its boundaries and take advantage of the many natural resources they discovered. In 1821, Mexico gained independence from Spain and they renamed the small port town Yerba Buena. As seen in this detailed map, sailing into the Bay became easier with the aid of images like this one from 1833. It would not be until the end of the Mexican-American War in 1848 that the Bay and surrounding areas became part of the United States.

“Very rare and important chart of San Francisco Bay, the result of the first scientific mapping of the Bay. The chart had a wide influence upon later maps of the area. The chart, with copies and adaptations of it, served to the end of the Mexican period and formed the substantial basis of the earliest ones produced under the American regime. It was deficient only in the region beyond Carquinez Strait. The chart of the entrance contains additional hydrographic data pertinent to entering the port and reaching the chief places of anchorage. Accompanying the chart are elevation views depicting the approaches to the bay and the hazards to navigation.” davidrumsey.com

Image 12 of 20 | Image: 4186 | Size: 9276x5238px E170 - 1570 Ortelius - Typus Orbus Terrarum

“Ortelius' book of maps, first published in 1570, is considered the first modern world atlas. It was the first time that a set of maps, contemporary to the date of publication, was designed, drawn, and engraved with the intention of publishing them in a bound volume. Ortelius did not refer to his publication as an "atlas," as we know it today. Rather he entitled it "Theater of the World," implying not only that the entire known world could be viewed in this one book, but that the Earth was a stage on which human actions unfolded. Although most of the maps in this book pertain to European countries and provinces, it can be considered a world atlas because it also includes a map of the world (displayed here), as well as one map for each of the four continents. The featured map is from the second state and was published c.1578 and is similar to the first state map, but with a few corrections. It is one of the most recognized maps from the Age of Discovery. This version includes the mythical Great Northern Passage, an irregular "bulge" on the west side of South America and the mythical Great Southern Continent, "Terra Australis Ingognita," roughly in the place of Antartica before its discovery. Most of North America is still based on conjecture and mythology, though he does credit Columbus for its discovery.” Steve Hanon, themapmaven.com

Image 19 of 20 | Image: 4194 | Size: 3791x5496px E170 - Psalter Map - 1265 - M5743

“The Psalter map is an English map from the thirteenth century that includes much information within it's small area Like many medieval maps, this world map subjectively presents Jerusalem, as enlarged and at the center, as Jesus overlooks the world. The map also contains many indicators of the materiality of the Middle Ages, including buildings, boats, "monstrous" human races (along the right-hand side) and the wind. Thus, the map acts as a record of how people experienced the world during this time period.” History Fine Prints (on etsy)

“Psalter World Map is the name historiography gave to a medieval world map that has been found in a psalter. This mappa mundi is now conserved at the British Library in London. The small map (c. 9.5 cm or 3.7 in high) shows a lot of detail. It was written around 1260; the author is unknown. According to historian Anna-Dorothee von den Brincken, it looks like a small version of the Ebstorf Map from Northern Germany. It is a typical mappa mundi that does not only show the geographical and historical knowledge, but also puts it into the frame of salvation history. Jesus Christ appears in the East (i.e. "above"), as the maps of Christian Middle Ages have East above, not North, giving a blessing with his right hand.” wikipedia

“A psalter is a volume containing the Book of Psalms, often with other devotional material bound in as well, such as a liturgical calendar and litany of the Saints. Until the later medieval emergence of the book of hours, psalters were the books most widely owned by wealthy lay persons and were commonly used for learning to read. Many Psalters were richly illuminated and they include some of the most spectacular surviving examples of medieval book art.” wikipedia
