Excellent French map of North America and the West Indies. Alaska is Amerique Russe and borders Nouveau Cornouailles (New Cornwall). The United States is shown with its claim in present-day British Columbia, here named Columbia. Mexico still encompasses Texas and the Southwest. The West also features some fictitious rivers. The most recent discoveries are shown in the polar region. A bold keyboard-style border encloses the map. Engraved by Giraldon-Bovinet.
