A Map of the British Empire in America…
Popple’s map reflected the growing British interest in the western boundaries of their American colonies. It minimizes the extent of the French land claims in North America visually and through it’s title’s claim of depicting “The British Empire in America” the with the French and Spanish Settlements relegated to being merely “Adjacent Thereto.”
STATE: There are four states of this map known. They are distinguished by the text (or lack thereof) below the neat line on the lower left corner of the map. This map is the second state.
