New MAP of the BRITISH DOMINIONS in NORTH AMERICA; with the Limits of the Governments annexed thereto by the late Treaty of Peace, and Settled by Proclamation, October 7th 1763
A map of North America after the Treaty of Paris and King George's Royal Proclamation showing territories gained beyond the original 13 colonies to along the Mississippi and in Québec. Although the Proclamation is mentioned, no line is drawn to show its territorial boundaries. The inset map shows the Florida peninsula that is beyond the southern extent of the main map. An elaborate scroll motif cartouche frames the title including authority and date. Map engraved for the History of War story in the Annual Register.
Two scale bars are present in British and French sea leagues and British Statute miles and London is used for the prime meridian; the scale was calculated from the scale bar and the coordinates from the map's graticule.
