Description

Scarce early map of the British Colonies in North America, one of the earliest maps to appear in a British Publication.

The map shows the British Colonies extending to the Ohio River, a direct encroachment upon the claims of the French. The map provides a curious depiction of the Colonies, with boundary lines trending northward, rather than to the west, as would become the more standardized depiction following the publication of John Mitchell's map in 1755.
