note English cartographer Thomas Jefferys (d. 1771) printed this map in May 1755, at an early stage in the French and Indian War. He based this map on the earlier Amerique Septentrionale (1746), by the French cartographer Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1692-1782). Largely serving the purposes of wartime propaganda, the map depicts, outlined in yellow, French inroads into the rich, fur-bearing regions around the Great Lakes. Accompanying text details the histories of "English Title to their Settlements on the Continent," and also "French Incroachments (sic)" on the same territory. The text describes the Iroquois Confederacy as British subjects, in accordance with the Treaty of Utrecht (1713), and mentions that these Natives are available as British allies against the French in North America.; Texts: "French Incrouchments," upper left; "English Title to their Settlements...", lower right; Shows the East coast from Labrador to northern Florida, and the interior as far west as the Mississippi River Valley.; Relief shown pictorially; From: Jefferys, T.
