De Fer's map is a version of his larger North American wall map issued the same year, and incorporates the updated information of the Mississippi River and other regions taken from reports by Francois Le Maire and French missionaries. This map includes native villages and encampments, animals, and daily activities not present in the first state. Cumming The Southeast in Early Maps 169 C (listing 3 institutional copies).
