Charming small map of the Americas. The map was originally drawn in 1762 and updated in this second state to include new discoveries in the Pacific Northwest, which now includes a large notation (French text) and a hint of a possible Northwest Passage. The coloring depicts the results of the French and Indian War. Decorative title cartouche.
