A map of North America with British controlled territories outlined in pink. Engraved scenes of wildlife, landmarks, and the lives of residents surround the map. National borders are overlaid with hand-colouring, as are internal administrative divisions within each country. The Grand Banks of Newfoundland are outlined; the Mississippi River shows prominently due to its line weight.
The scale bar is in miles, and Greenwich is used for the prime meridian; the scale was calculated from the map's scale bar and the coordinates were obtained via georeferencing.
