Some points of interest on this map:
- The Ohio river is called the "Oyo".
- New Albion is on the western coast (Claimed by Sir Francis Drake in 1579).
- Cafa Grande - Appears to be at the source of the Gila river. Most likely not the same Casa Grande we know today although it is in a similar location.
- I am unable to locate the "Ide la Pafsion" (south and slightly west of Acapulco, Mexico) on any map I have.
- The Caribbean is well defined, but Florida is poorly defined and drawn with mountains.
- New York lacks significant westward expansion much beyond the Hudson.
- The Red (Rouge) river still uses a French name while this area is a Spanish holding at the time of this engraving (by the Treaty of Paris in 1763).
- The Mississippi river is spelled: Mifowipi (or something like it).
- Lake Michigan is called Lake "Illenois".
- This map was just six years short of the return of Captain Cook from his third voyage that mapped the north-western coast of North America.
