    Very Nice example of De Vaugondy’s map of the English Colonies in America, extending south to South Carolina.  The map provides exceptional detail throughout, extending to the Missisippi & Illinois Rivers in the West. The map tracks the course of the Ohio from its confluence with the Mississippi to its headwaters in New York. The Old Northwest and Ohio are dominated by Indian Tribes. The information used on this map was garnered from indigenous sources immediately prior to the commencement of the French and Indian War. The map is especially noteworthy for its Transappalachian information. Extends north to Penobscot Bay and South to Wilmington/Cape Fear, with an inset extending to Amelia Island and Jacksonville (unnamed).

    Abstract Covers the area from the Great Lakes to South Carolina and from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River. Relief shown pictorially. Shows provinces, counties, towns and cities, rivers, Native American villages and tribal territory, forts, and numerous place names. Depicts areas of inhabitance in North Carolina by Native American tribes, including the Cherakees (Cherokees) and Catawbas. “Welsh settlements” are noted in southeastern North Carolina, near the Cape Fear River. Includes inset: Supplement pour la Carolina.
