This map shows all of North and South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland, with portions of New Jersey and Georgia. There is good detail in the states with many roads and settlements located. The Chesapeake is well depicted. The huge region to the west has early topography and watershed, but is virtually devoid of settlement except for a few forts and some interesting place names like Hurricane Tom's. Four distance scales and longitude is noted from both Paris and the Isle de Fer. Published by Chanlaire & Mentelle.
