Scarce map of the Southeast, based upon John Mitchell's Map of the British Colonies, also issued in 1755. The map extends to West of the Mississippi River in Arkanasas, Chactaws and Osage Country. Virginia, the Carolinias and Georgia extend to the Mississippi and there is only one Florida noted. The lands just east of the Mississippi are still dominated by the French and Indians, including the Chactaws, Chicaswas, Cherakees [sic] and Illinois. Many early forts are noted, including Ft. Mobile, Ft. Rosalie, at least 5 French Forts, Ft. Francis, Ft. Orleans on the Missouri, Ft. Chartres, etc. In the Ohio Valley, there are notes regarding the actions of the English and French during the French & Indian War in 1754. Nice, if inaccurate rendering of the Chesapeake. An excellent early regional map. Cumming p224; Jolly Lond-96.
