A steel engraved hemispheric style map of the Western Hemisphere. Hand-coloured lines delineate national borders. Engraved vignettes of scenes depicting New World wildlife, and scenes of ordinary life of the locals, each in its own oval or round border, frame the map proper. Islands with pink outlines show certain British territories. Relief is shown, along with coastal shading.
Greenwich is used for the prime meridian, and no scale bar is present; the scale and coordinates were calculated using the map's graticule.
