Uncommon, small map with odd boundaries, dating to just after the Revolutionary War. Each colony appears as an amorphous strip stretching north-south, reflecting the lack of knowledge of colonial boundaries in France. Simple decorative title cartouche.

Nice impression and attractive later color. The top margin has been extended to accommodate framing, and there is a tiny hole in a blank area of the map.
