Model #37817 Waldseemüller antique map

* Martin Waldseemüller was a German cartographer, who was regarded as one of Worlds finest cartographers, best known for his Universalis Cosmographia, a 12-sheet woodblock map dated 1507.  Not only was it one of the first maps to precisely chart latitude and longitude, but it was the first to reference the name "America" (honoring Amerigo Vespucci). One of Waldseemüller's gore globes sold for  $1002,267 USD, thus fetching a world record price for such items.

** Rene-Robert de LaSalle was a French explorer who sailed to Canada when he was 23 years old. He learned from the Iroquois people of a grate river which led to the sea.  Assuming the river in question flowed into the Gulf of California, the enticing thought of a possible profitable western trade route to China arose. LaSalle led an expedition to the Great Lakes in 1679, and four years later sailed down the Illinois River to the Mississippi River and all the way to the Gulf of Mexico, claiming the entire Mississippi River Basin - what he called the Louisiana Territory - for France.
