    A bold engraving showing the colonial possessions, as well as a wealth of
    information about native peoples and their towns. In a adjacent text in the lower
    left, Bowen acknowledges drawing from French mapmakers Charlevoix and
    especially Bellin. Shows reasonably formed Great Lakes, with the legendary
    ficticious islands popping up in Lake Superior. Fascinating for its depiction of
    Native American tribal territories. These unbounded regions such as the "Country
    of the Chouanons adn the Cherokees" covering most of the lands south of the
    Ohio River and stretching into the deep south, with many Cherokee towns
    named. Likewise west of the Mississippi river we see the "Country of the Cenis"
    in Texas, or the "Country of the Osayes" across what would be present day
    Missouri and Kansas.
    Condition is good with some repairs to the centerfold. Image size is approximately 17 x 14
