This is an uncommon, large-scale map published by the Depot de la Marine, as ordered by Étienne-François, duc de Choiseul during the Seven Years War. The map is packed with information on the topography, fortifications, villages, roads and trails. The chart is adorned with a large military-theme title cartouche and a decorative distance scale cartouche. The seal of the Depot de la Marine is at lower right with Prix un Franc et demi below the neatline.
Minor damp stains in the blank margins. There is some surface soil and minor offsetting within the map.
