Carte de la Californie This copper engraving by Vaugondy in Diderot's Encylopedia in 1779 disproved the notion of California as an island. It was intended as a history of the mapping of California succeeding the detailed charts of the western coast by Captain Cook and George Vancouver. Note that this map has an indentation at lower left border from where it was placed in the encyclopedia which can be matted out. It measures 14 1/2 x 19 inches.
