This is a derivative of Delisle's landmark map of the southern part of North America and the West Indies. The detailed map shows many English settlements along the East Coast and carefully notes the discoveries of D'Iberville along the Gulf Coast and Mississippi River. The vast region, later known as Louisiana, from Florida through present-day Texas is shown as the French possession of Floride. There is also a great amount of detail in Nouveau Mexique, particularly of the Spanish missions: Santa Fe, Taos, and Acoma.
