A very decorative map of the Americas with panels of French text at side and surrounded in a baroque style border. The northwest coast of North America is very truncated. The British colonies are confined to the eastern seaboard, France controls most of the interior, and Spain possesses Mexico and the West Coast. Sparse interior details.
Faint stain of the Atlantic coast of South America, still very good.
