This interesting map of New England exhibits some very odd boundaries. The states appear as amorphous strips stretching north-south displaying the lack of French knowledge of the existing boundaries. The map is a close copy of Joseph La Porte's 1780 map of the same title, with a simplified cartouche and the change of Possessions Angloises in the Atlantic to Etats Unis.

Small damp stain in bottom right corner and some very faint offsetting.
