Thoroughly documented, this tells of the search for El Dorado, the preliminary explorations of Fray Marcos seeking the Seven Cities of Cibola, Alarcon's voyage, the discovery of the Colorado, the explorations of Coronado and his lieutenants... Then there are Coronado's later years as governor of Nueva Galicia, his trial and acquital." Kirkus
Nuove scoperte de' Russi al nord del Mare del Sud si nell' Asia, che nell' America by Antonio Zatta( Map )
1 edition published in 1776 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"The idea of a Northwest Passage linking the Hudson Bay to the Pacific is central to this map ... embraces the speculative geography advocated by Nicholas De L'Isle and Phillipe Bauche. De L'Isle and Bauche were supporters of the Northwest Passage theory associated with the apocryphal voyage of the 17th century Admiral de Fonte ... Both the Kingdom of Anian and the Straight of Anian ... Just south of the Strait of Anian, Zatta includes 'Fou-Sang' which he describes as a Chinese Colony. Fusang of Fousang is a region first documented by the Chinese Buddhist missionary Hui Shen in the 5th century. Hui Shen describes a land some 20,000 Chinese Li (c. 8000 km) east of the China coast ... In later days Fusang was commonly used in Chinese poetry to designate Japan, however earlier references keep it distinct ... Hui Shen's description of Fusang with regard to distance and geography, corresponds more with the coastlands of North America than with Japan. The French historian Joseph de Guignes in his 1761article 'Le Fou-Sang des Chinois est-il l'Amérique? ' promoted this idea. Cartographers of the era, including Zatta, embraced the idea and it was included in many subsequent maps of the region ... Traveling eastward from the colony of Fu-sang Zatta has us following the apocryphal River of the West. This river, based upon a misinterpretation of the Mississippi as described by the indigenous American Indians of the Great Lakes region, started appearing on maps as early as the Bellin map of 1743 and remained well into the early 19th century ... Zatta maps the River of the West as flowing almost directly westward from L. Salso, near the city of Moozemlek in the [lake] of the Tahuglauks ... clearly a reference to the Great Salt Lake ... [from the account of the] French explorer Baron de Lahontan. Lahontan's explorations are highly criticized as near or total fabrications ... Lahontan offers a detailed map to accompany his account showing this river--which our map shows running just to the east of the L. Salso as the 'F. Longo.' In Lahontan's own map he divides the 'Long River' between areas that he has personally explored and regions that he has mapped from Native American descriptions. It is from these same American Indian groups that Lahontan heard tales of the Salt Lake that he describes in his narrative and that appears in our Zatta map ... Travelling south of the Chinese colony of Fu-sang we come across the legendary Kingdom of Quivira. Quivira, along with Cibola, was one of the Seven Cities of Gold from Spanish folklore ... Coronado, hearing tales of the rich Aztec homeland of Azatlan somewhere to the north believed he was hunting for Quivira in what is today the American southwest. The Venetian cartographer Zaltieri, reading Coronado's accounts, moved Quivira further north, near Anian, where Zatta places it and where it remained for several hundred years ... Just south of the Salt Lake we find the region of Teguayo or Tolm. Teguayo was also associated with the Seven Cities of gold and the 16th century explorations of Coronado"--Geographicus Rare Antique Maps website, viewed on October 15, 2015
