This is an attractive small map of North America and the West Indies. Mexico is in control of the southwest and the only mention of Texas is the Rio Colorado de Texas. There is good detail of the river systems with only a few cities named along the eastern seaboard including New York, Philadelphia and Washington. Alaska is Amerique Russe and still a bit misshapen. Decorated by fancy titling and two distance scales.
