This wall-sized map is considered one of the most sought after and collectable maps not only because of the depiction of an insular California, its wealth of cartographic details but also because of the elaborate decoration: there are plenty of vignettes showing the customs and life-styles of indigenous American people, human sacrifices, a variety of indigenous animals and plants; plantation and harvesting of food plants; trading as well as a very charming display of Canadian beavers building a dam at Niagara Falls which gave the map its by-name 'The Beaver Map'! Apart from the illustrations, there are plenty of explanatory descriptions in French within the map.
