Copper engraving illustrating the region at the beginning of the French and Indian War. It is a very detailed map of the British and French possessions and the disputed region between the Mississippi River and the Appalachian and Allegheny Mountains, which is graphically depicted by the original color. The frontier forts of both nations are located, as are colonial settlements and Indian villages. A small compass rose is the only ornamentation. The map was based on information from John Mitchell's great map of North America.
