Henry Popple's 20 sheet Map of the British Empire in America is without question one of the two most important large format maps of North America published in the 18th Century. Along with John Mitchell's Map of the British & French Dominions in North America. (1755), 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 maps is nearly 8 feet square, when joined. 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. Popple's map was widely copied by other cartographers and remained the standard map of North America for several decades. The map was issued both as a wall map and as an Atlas, with the present example including advertising for the various formats in the lower margin of sheet 17, including pricing of the various formats.

This edition was sold by Stephen Austin Bookseller and Thomas Willdey in London. Compare this later edition with the first edition of 1733.

Babinski State 8. Full color on the twenty sheet map. Complete map is a composite of all twenty sheets of the Popple Atlas.
