Notes

First editions in German of the two most important French explorations of Louisiana, which connected the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River system. Louis Jolliet, a Quebec-born fur trader, and Fr. Jacques Marquette, S.J., departed from Fort Michilimackinac in May 1673 in search of the great river they had heard about from their Indian trading partners. The French hoped that the river would flow to the Pacific and thence to Asia. They did not reach the Pacific, or even the Gulf of Mexico, but in addition to canoeing nearly a thousand miles of the Mississippi, Marquette and Jolliet charted stretches of the Wisconsin, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, and Arkansas rivers before returning to Michigan. Marquette's journal of the expedition was first published in Thévenot's Recueil de Voyages (1681) and reissued several times; all editions are very rare. This little recognized German edition is equally scarce, and, like the earlier French printings, is accompanied by a map?just the second map to show the Mississippi River and to name Lake Michigan. Beschreibung ... im Mitternächtigen America, is appended to the first German edition of Hennepin's account of La Salle's travels and discoveries in the upper Mississippi, first published as Description de la Louisiane (Paris, 1683).Beschreibung der Landschafft Louisiana welche auf Befehl des Königs in Frankreich neulich gegen Sudwesten Neu-Frankreichs in America entdecket worden.
