A scarce and unusual chart of the Atlantic on a conical projection focussing on the "kingdoms, states and domains which the kings and the crown of Great Britain possess or have possessed in Europe, Africa and America. Britain's colonies in North America (prior to the French and Indian War) are outlined and its Caribbean islands are named. On the other side of the ocean, British claims in Germany, France, Spain and Africa are indicated. A fascinating record of Britain's early global expansion.
