An antique atlas published in the third year of the Seven Years' War (1756-63), which was fought in Europe by Britain, Prussia and other German allies against France, Austria, Spain, Russia, Saxony & Sweden. The seven maps are of Bohemia, Westphalia & Lower Saxony, Lausitz & Silesia, Moravia, Northern Germany, Pomerania & Prussia and the course of the Rhine. At the end is the additional map, in the same style, showing the eastern coast of North America. Based on Bellin's map, it shows the conflicting territorial claims of the British and French. It is included in this series because the region became another theatre of the Seven Years' War, with Britain fighting the French and their Indian allies, eventually driving the French out of Canada.
