Charming miniature map depicting the eastern seaboard from the Chesapeake Bay to Greenland and extending to include Bermuda. The Great Lakes are shown open-ended in the west. Strapwork title cartouche and an Indian family adorn the map. French text on verso.
Good impression with wide margins. One area of ink or soiling in margin touching border.
