A hand-coloured map of British and French settlements in North America for Hinton's Universal Magazine. The map has unique horizontal colouration not following any specific region: however, the explanation provided in the text on page 145 and following state the colouration distinguishes several provinces. The uncoloured part of the map contains all the territories held by France. The text further explains ceded territories and treaties. The pricked line from Escondido in the Gulf of Mexico through New Hampshire an the Allegany mountains is what the French prescribe as the boundary of English settlements. Dotted lines appear to represent many features including fishing banks, possible borders, possible routes, and other features. The annotation for some forts have white masking. It is difficult to discern where the map states New France to be, although it is possible that it states all of the area west of Québec to belong to the French; South Carolina is split by Georgia; Port Toulouse in Cape Breton is shown before having its name later changed to St. Peter's; territories of various native tribes are written but not delineated; hachuring is used to show some relief, and the Allegheny subset of the Appalachian Mountains is annotated . The cartouche framing the title is exceedingly elaborate depicting a ship with mast and flag, baskets of flowers, many floral objects, a full second ship, many sails in the distance, trees, birds, and an urn. The inset shows a large scale plan of the French fort (Fort Saint-Frédéric) at Crown Point, New York, with a profile view of the tower.
