A Map of the British and French Dominions in North America with the Roads, Distances, Limits and Extent of the Settlements.
This is the second edition of this important map, dated 1755 but published in 1757, according to the British Museum. The only change from the first issue is the addition of several panels of interesting text in ocean. The original eight printed sheets of the map are here assembled in two large panels (each with four sheets) each dissected into 36 sections and mounted on linen. Uncolored, as issued. In the sixth line of the first column of the text this issue is referred to as the Second Edition One of the most important maps in American history, it went through five editions (see Stevens). We believe this second edition is scarcer than the other editions as it appears less often on the market. Compare to the first French edition of 1856 (our copy) regarding the conflicting claims of the British and French to American territory.

1st French edition, 8 sheets. Very interesting French reengraving of Mitchell's map, emphasizing their territorial claims at the expense of the British claims; in particular they add an area of "contestations" between French claims and the English claims.
