Carte del 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. It is identical to the map next to it except there is no indentation on the left side. It measures 15 3/4 x 18 inches.
