California is shown as an island. The left side of North America is unknowed, we can see the "terre de la compagnie", just near Russia. Australia and New Zealand are not finished. Terra del Fuego is detached from the continent.

One of the first map to show the Great Lakes. No towns ar marked on the map because, as. The title says, more prominence is given to marine and river features. One change sanson has made is the redesignation of Nouvelle Albion in north-west America as Terra de Iesso.

The Destriot d'Anian has also been re-assigned to just north of the island of California. Active from 1627, Sanson published its first major map, the Postes de France, in 1632, with the publisher Melchior Tavernier. After having published a few general atlases alone, he worked with the print editor Pierre Mariette.
