This is one sheet of Zatta's version of John Mitchell's epic map. The whole map was titled "Le Colonie Unite dell' America Settentrle". It was published as a set of twelve individual maps. This sheet depicts Lake Superior, based on the Bellin model, as it appeared on the Mitchell map. A large inset shows the tip of southern Florida and the Bahamas. Ref: Sellers and Van Ee #163; Kershaw #980. A superb impression with fine original color.
