Description

As an active London engraver and map publisher in that period, Seale’s numerous works depicted various areas of the British empire, other countries, and the world. Many cartographers who depicted North America in the second half of the 18th century relied on Jean Baptiste B. d’Anville’s 1755 map. D’Anville showed an expanded French empire that the English re-interpreted as encroachments on British territory.
