A map of "East Canada and New Brunswick" divided into districts, counties and townships. An engraving of the view of the harbour at Québec City sits in the top left corner of the map, while an engraving of a very curious scene, possibly out of Native legend, is shown bottom centre; also pictured is the Great Seal of Lower Canada in the bottom right. Grand Manan and the its surrounding islands are not drawn.
Significant fishing banks are present. It is interesting that the French persisted in using their historical place names even though at this time all the territory on the map was under British control under the terms of the Treaty of Paris (1763) which ended the Seven Years War.

Tooley calls this a foundational map of North America and the first to revert to the southern part of California as a peninsula since the early 1600's. It uses outline color to depict the colonial possessions although the colors used are not consistent or explained between examined online copies of this exact state.
A hand-coloured map of British and French settlements in North America for Hinton's Universal Magazine. The map has unique horizontal colouration not following any specific region: however, the explanation provided in the text on page 145 and following state the colouration distinguishes several provinces. The uncoloured part of the map contains all the territories held by France. The text further explains ceded territories and treaties. The pricked line from Escondido in the Gulf of Mexico through New Hampshire an the Allegany mountains is what the French prescribe as the boundary of English settlements. Dotted lines appear to represent many features including fishing banks, possible borders, possible routes, and other features. The annotation for some forts have white masking. It is difficult to discern where the map states New France to be, although it is possible that it states all of the area west of Québec to belong to the French; South Carolina is split by Georgia; Port Toulouse in Cape Breton is shown before having its name later changed to St. Peter's; territories of various native tribes are written but not delineated; hachuring is used to show some relief, and the Allegheny subset of the Appalachian Mountains is annotated . The cartouche framing the title is exceedingly elaborate depicting a ship with mast and flag, baskets of flowers, many floral objects, a full second ship, many sails in the distance, trees, birds, and an urn. The inset shows a large scale plan of the French fort (Fort Saint-Frédéric) at Crown Point, New York, with a profile view of the tower.

An elaborate scroll motif cartouche frames the title including authority and date. Map engraved for the History of War story in the Annual Register.
This map contains elements from previous maps; most specifically, the cartouche is copied from De Vaugondy's 1755 map of Canada. The map is hand coloured with the colours showing the British and French possessions of the area covered. The atlas this map is from was published between 1776 and 1784. Sources consulted do not specify which printing this map is from although as the 1st state it was earlier, rather than later in this period.
According to Skelton & Tooley (#13) the imprint is indicative of the 1st state of the North American Pilot. While several maps in the North American Pilot were previously published, the Chaleur Bay map was not. Notes underwater features and fishing banks.
Although Walter has a notation on the map of c.1745, research definitely marks this as the 4th State with the extension of the fishing banks to Cape Race and the added stippling of the fishing banks. This state was published unchanged in the English Pilot. 4th Book from 1753-1775.
