An interesting detailed early 18th Century map of the British and French Colonies in North America, showing tremendous detail throughout the map. The details are as good as any map of the era. Includes many forts, villages, Indian Names, and early colonial settlements, including excellent details west of the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes and Texas regions. An early appearance of the newly formed Georgia Colony. From Schreiber's Atlas Selectus. A nice example in full color. An interesting variant edition, which omits the note below the bottom left neatline regarding the line of demarcation between the English & French Colonies, although no apparent differences in the maps. We are listing two variant editions of the map, which were purchased from a single collection, but the map is scarce on the market.
The item illustrated and described below is sold, but we have another example in stock. To view the example which is currently being offered for sale, click the "View Details" button below.
