Accurate Map of the ENGLISH COLONIES in North America bordering on the River Ohio
Covers from Maine to South Carolina and west to Lake Michigan. Relief shown pictorially. Title enclosed in simple double-lined box. A map of English colonies in America before the Revolutionary War. Some English names are present before they were later changed in favour of more nationalistic ones. Lake Michigan is considerably smaller in this map, and its connection to Lake Huron is more than 300 km to the north of where the map places it.
It is difficult to define a projection without graticule curvature; referenced to WGS/WebMercator unsatisfactorily. No scale bar is present on the map, and London is used for the prime meridian; both the scale and coordinates were calculated from the map's graticule.
