North America from the eastern seaboard to the Rocky Mountains. Based on Delisle's map of 1718 with additions from notes compiled by the Jesuit priest, explorer and historian, Pierre-Francois-Xavier de Charlevoix. The map was compiled in part from the Chaussegros de Lery manuscripts and is also noteworthy for the fictitious mountain range in Michigan.
In 1750 and again in 1755, Bellin significantly revised and updated the map, including improved cartographic detail in the Great Lakes. The coverage of the map is also extended further south to show all of Florida.

Bellin attempted to locate the Spanish, French, and British settlements along the eastern seaboard. The coverage of the map is also extended further south to show all of Florida.
All of the English colonies are closely contained east of the Appalachian mountains.

The French cartographers Jacques Nicolas Bellin, Jean-Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville, and Robert de Vaugondy, John Mitchell's contemporaries, adopted features from his map in their works but added their conceptions of boundaries to counter the British claims : L'Ohio que les Anglais appellent Alliganey. Prior to the outbreak of The French and Indian War the French had begun to seize British Forts on the Monongahela and Ohio rivers. Formal warfare commenced on July 4, 1755, when George Washington's troops were defeated at Fort Necessity (F. de Necessité détruit), and five days later General Braddock's troops were repelled at the battle of the Wilderness below Fort Le Quesne (Fort Duquesne). The Indians placed their allegiance with the French, giving the war the name by which it was called in North America.

Scale ca. 1:5,800,000
