The color is old and possibly contemporary but the colorist has not followed the suggestions in the printed key. Shows the territorial claims of France and Britain at the outbreak of the French-Indian War. A caption refers to lands "disputed" by the French, rather than the "encroachments" designated by English maps of the period. McCorkle 755.9; Sellers & Van Ee 58.
