Beautifully engraved, large map of the eastern seaboard with an inset of the South Carolina coast on the same scale. The mapping of the trans-Allegheny and Great Lakes regions and in the interior of New England is of particular interest, for this shows some of the earliest accurate information of these regions incorporating data from the Mitchell, Evans and Fry-Jefferson maps. This is the first state with the boundary between the British colonies and Louisiane following along the Appalachians. Impressive title cartouche fills the Atlantic.
