Collot, George Henri Victor (French)

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Collot, George Henri Victor (French, 1750-1805), "A General Map of the River Ohio, From its source to its mounth [sic]: containing the names of the Towns, Villages and Farms established at present on its banks: together with its soundings and course," Plates 8, 9, 10 and 11, engraved map on 4 sheets, from Voyages dans l'Amerique Septentrionale..., Paris, 1826 (printed 1804), 11 1/2 in. x 19 in., 11 1/2 in. x 37 in., 11 1/2 in. x 28 1/4 in. and 11 1/2 in. x 37 in., total w. 121 1/4 in., each linen backed. Provenance: Gaspar Cusachs, entrepreneur, historian and collector, (1855-1929); The Gaspar Cusachs Collection, loaned to the Louisiana State Museum, New Orleans, LA (c. 1909-2016). Note: General Victor Collot, who had long served in a military capacity for France, was commissioned in 1796 to explore the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and to make detailed observations on geographic, economic, and agricultural aspects of the Mississippi basin. The underlying mission more likely was to obtain an assessment of Spain's military strength along the river, with the ultimate plan of returning the region to French control. Collot was arrested on espionage charges by Spanish Governor Carondelet in New Orleans and deported. Collot's observations and detailed maps were compiled into a book and atlas which were printed in French and English in 1804/05, but not distributed until 1826 due to his death. At the time of distribution, all but 400 copies were intentionally destroyed. The full atlas is exceedingly rare and few records of individual maps are found in American Map Price Record from the last 30 years. Ref.: “General Collot’s Reconnoitering Trip Down the Mississippi.” Louisiana Historical Quarterly. Vol. 1. No. 4. Louisiana Historical Society: 1918. P. 309-329.
