AN ACCURATE MAP OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE IN NTH AMERICA AS SETTLED BY THE PRELIMINARIES IN 1762

Code: M4170

Cartographer: John GIBSON

Date: 1762 London

Size: 21*26 cms

Interesting map of the British Colonies in 1762. Covers the area from the Mississippi to Labrador.

This map shows the results of the British victory in the Seven Years War, the American phase of which is known as the French and Indian War. The information is based on the preliminary agreement signed between Great Britain, France and Spain, which was officially signed as the Treaty of Paris in 1763, very shortly after this map appeared. This treaty ceded the entire continent east of the Mississippi River to the British, and this map was issued essentially in order to document for the British public the huge gains that resulted. All of the area in North America that was contested in the war, including Canada -formerly New France-, and the trans-Appalachian region that included the western parts of Virginia, Carolina, and Georgia, are shaded, to contrast with the original British colonies along the Atlantic seaboard. Also included on the map is a inset map of the mouth of the Mississippi River, which the British considered to be an important gateway to their newly won territory.
