This handsome map shows the geo-political boundaries of North America. The southern colonies all show open western borders. The map gives great detail between the Appalachians, Alleghanies and the Mississippi River, noting forts, rivers and many Native American tribes. First state of four. This map differs from later states of the map in that it lacks an engraved title cartouche and includes a very different Florida configuration and has not been updated with Carver's surveys. Maps
