    This interesting map was issued to illustrate the part of Louisiana being rapidly settled by British subjects at the conclusion of the French and Indian War. It is full of fascinating details including the locations of Indian tribes and villages, gold mines, forts, and frontier outposts. The colonies of Virginia, Carolina, and Georgia are named, as is Florida. A line along the Appalachians is labeled "Formerly the French claim'd all ye Country Westward of this Line." Large expanses of country are shown belonging to various Indian nations. In present day Texas is Country of the Cenis, Gr. Village of the Cenis, and The Garrison of the North or of St. John Baptist in the region of El Paso. A large river and lake west of the Mississippi is identified as The Great River according to M. de la Hontan.

Condition Description: Issued folding with a short binding tear that has been closed with archival tape at far right, a spot of minor soiling in Georgia, and a narrow margin at right.
