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 colony of Georgia (1752) is included in the list of English colonies at lower right. The large Louisiane region west of the Mississippi is filled with Indian tribes and villages.
Trimmed to the neatline all around with some light staining that is more prominent at bottom.
