This looks like a reprint of the Guillaume Delisle map of North America - Paris June 1718. It was one of the first maps to accurately depict the course of the Mississippi River and one of the first to show routes of various Spanish explorers. Reprints of this are pretty common and not valuable, but if you have an older one you might contact the Louisiana State Museum in New Orleans for more information.
