A Dutch version of Jean Palairet's important map showing the French and English territorial claims on the eve of the French and Indian War. The map is filled with detail of towns, forts, roads, and tribal lands. Title and notations are in both French and Dutch. Beautiful original color delineating the French and British colonies and those lands in dispute between the two powers.
