A map of Western Europe and North Africa around the end of the Seven Years War. As a chart coastal features are emphasized, and there is very little promoting figure/ground distinction save some light shading. Due to the small scale no soundings are shown; a few hazards and sand banks are displayed around Jersey and the English Channel. A 32 point compass rose shows rhumb lines around the Bay of Biscay, and the St. Georges and English Channels. The cartouche includes authority and is exceedingly elaborate with etches of sailing ships and sail boats, birds in flight, and vegetation.

An elaborate scroll motif cartouche frames the title including authority and date. Map engraved for the History of War story in the Annual Register.
