Beaurain used John Mitchell's famous map of 1755 as a base map, and shows all of North America as far west as the Great Plains. But he has modified and updated Mitchell's political boundaries. The Southern English colonies no longer extend indefinitely to the west, but now have their western boundaries at the Mississippi River. The new Canadian province of Quebec, founded in the 1760s, has been added in, and numerous changes and additions have been made in the Midwest and deep South. The large and very decorative inset at lower right gives a detailed close-up look at the Mid-Atlantic colonies.
The entire map is heavily ornamented, with a rococo title cartouche at upper-left, and a lavish depiction of Mars, the God of War, watching Fame proclaim the new country.
The map is known in three states, which can be identified as follows :
- State 1: Title of the inset reads: Carte de la Nouvelle York d'une partie de la Nouvelle Angleterre et de la Pensilvany.
- State 2: Inset title has been altered to read Carte de Nouvelle York de la Nouvelle Jersey, d'une Partie de la Nouvelle Angleterre de celle Pensilvany du Maryland et de la Virginy.
- State 3: A folding flap has been pasted to the lower margin of the inset, which extends the geography south to Chesapeake Bay.
This copy is in second state : There are substantial changes between the first state and the second state. Lake Champlain is significantly revised, most notably in the south, as is Lake George. The upper Hudson River is also significantly revised above Albany. In the inset, there are dozens of new place names added.
Reference: Sellers & Van Ee #149, McCorkle, B.B. (New England) 777.3.
