Rarely seen map of the Southeast, showing the regions east of the Mississippi in an unusual configuration. Present-day Tennessee is named as Caroline, while North and South Carolina are named but shown without a boundary separating them. The regions that would become Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia are within a large Louisiane and an oddly triangular Floride that reaches up to a range of mountains running east-west from the Appalachians to the Mississippi River. The map is filled with Indian place names.
