Amérique du Nord

Item Information

Title:
Amérique du Nord
Description:
Young European women also practiced geography in school-settings during the early 19th-century. This map of North America by Louisa Pinchon of Elbeuf, France, a village on the Seine River fifty miles northwest of Paris, may well have been part of a larger collection, as evidenced by the fold marks along the center of the sheet. Louisa signed her work under a cartouche comprised of tobacco leaves, grown extensively in Cuba and the southeastern United States. Geographic education at the time often included lessons on natural and cultural resources of an area, and most likely played a role in the mapmaker's design.
