This uncommon map was part of Cassini's six-sheet representation of the settled portions of North America. Cassini drew largely from the Zatta-Mitchell map of North America. This sheet is focused on the southeastern region of present-day Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. The native tribes are noted, and the forts and roads are located along with a number of towns. The map is decorated with a landscape cartouche featuring fishermen.
