Nice small map of the continent depicting the political boundaries. The British colonies are confined to the eastern seaboard and there is a very large 'Louisiane'. The Ohio River is labeled 'R. des Ouabaches'. The entire Northwest coast, above the peninsula of California, is blank. There is an open-end bay in Hudson Bay leaving open the possibility of the Northwest Passage. Simple title block.
