This boldly engraved map details the British and French colonies in North America on the eve of the French & Indian War. The coloring distinguishes the disputed region between the Appalachian Mountains and the Mississippi River. The newly formed (1752) colony of Georgia is included in the list of English colonies at lower right. The large Louisiane region east of the Mississippi is filled with Indian tribes and villages.
Original color on watermarked paper with one small spot adjacent to key at bottom right. Professionally backed with Japanese tissue to repair a small separation at a fold intersection (with tiny bit of paper loss), else very good.
