About the map, ready for your wall:

The first large scale map of North America and the most accurate at the time. It shows the extent of the British, French, and Spanish colonial possessions. The information on the map was based on Popple’s work at the Board of Trade and Plantations in London. Popple’s map was widely copied by other cartographers and remained the standard map of North America for several decades.

– The map was a profound statement of England’s designs for dominance of the North American continent, at a time when colonial control of North America was by no means certain.
– Popple’s map is the first large scale printed map to show the thirteen colonies.
– The map shows the extent of the British, French, and Spanish colonial possessions.
– The information on the map was based on Popple’s work at the Board of Trade and Plantations in London.
– George Washington owned a copy of the Key map (Popple’s abbreviated version) and Benjamin Franklin ordered two copies for the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1746 and another in 1752.
– Include four views: Mexico City, New York, Quebec and Niagara Falls, and a sheet with eighteen harbor and island plans from Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia to Porto Bello in Panama.
– Authentication statement of Edmund Halley at the map bottom verifies the accuracy of the map!
– Popple’s map was widely copied by other cartographers and remained the standard
map of North America for several decades.
