Nice small map of the continent depicting the political boundaries. The British colonies are confined to the eastern seaboard and there is a very large Louisiane. The Ohio River is labeled R. des Ouabaches. The entire Northwest coast, above the peninsula of California, is blank. There is an open-ended bay in Hudson Bay leaving open the possibility of the Northwest Passage. Simple block title cartouche.
