TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: 'North America British possessions'
Vancouver Island is marked with its original European name of "Quadra and Vancouver Island", reflecting the territorial claims at the time of both Spain and Great Britain; the British did not establish a colony on the island until 1843, shortly after publication of the map. Although not coloured, what was then the border between the United States and British North America (now Canada) is marked by a dotted line along the 49th parallel as far west as the Rocky Mountain, from there it follows the Rocky Mountains North to approximately the 54th parallel, including the southern part of the modern province of British Columbia. This reflected the US territorial claim of the time, while the British wanted a border that followed the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean. This dispute was resolved in the Oregon Treaty of 1846, which established the 49th parallel as the boundary through the Rockies. That the border was not coloured on the map presumably reflected its unresolved nature at the time. The borders marked on the map also predate the WebsterAshburton Treaty of 1842 which resolved the dispute known as the Aroostook War over the boundary between Maine on the one hand, and New Brunswick and the Province of Canada on the other. The treaty redefined the border between New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York on the one hand, and the Province of Canada on the other, resolving the Indian Stream dispute and the Fort Blunder dilemma at the outlet to Lake Champlain.
