Eastern Canada with New England, Acadia and Newfoundland

This map contains elements from previous maps; most specifically, the cartouche is copied from De Vaugondy's 1755 map of Canada. The map is hand coloured with the colours showing the British and French possessions of the area covered. The atlas this map is from was published between 1776 and 1784. Sources consulted do not specify which printing this map is from although as the 1st state it was earlier, rather than later in this period.
This map uses Tenerife as the prime meridian (approximately 16.5° west of Greenwich). The scale bar is measured in Italian and English miles and the English miles graphic scale was interpreted to be in statute miles. The scale was determined by comparing the scale bar with a secondary calculation by increment of latitude.

The presence of "P.11" in the upper right corner confirms this as the 1st state of the map (Kershaw 713).
