Views; shows Plantations by type; very scarce. In full color; lacks original covers. See our reproduction copy issued by Pelican Press, originally in 1931, and printed by Rand McNally - this reproduction greatly alters the original. Ritzlin catalogue: "Persac was a well known surveyor and landscape painter ... the map is quite scarce and normally in poor condition because most copies were used by river pilots to locate plantation landings. Few copies are known in contemporary boards. NUC lists only three copies ... however several copies are located in the south, including one which the Louisiana Supreme Court still uses in land ownership cases." Incredible detail, showing the Plantations on both sides of the river. Four engraved views. Engraved by J.H. Colton. Lacking boards, this copy has some tears at the folds with slight loss at some intersections, some light browning in two areas, but is overall a very good copy. Copies at LSU, Historic New Orleans Collection (504-523-4662). See Antiques Magazine, Nov. 1991 for Persac Article. Norman also published "Norman's New Orleans and Environs" with a map of the city, in 1845 (see our copy).
