This general map of the Americas was produced by the firm of Vaugondy. Gilles Robert de Vaugondy was the leading French globemaker of the 18th century, and was appointed geographer to Louis XV in 1734. Like "L'Amerique divisée en ses principaux Etats" by Lattre and Bonne from 1788, this map shows the new boundaries of North America as a result of the Treaty of Paris in 1783. The newly created United States, along with Spanish lands in the south are clearly delineated. This may be the fourth state of the map, however it is not listed in Pedley's "Bel et Utile."
