Burr was appointed to be topographer to the U.S. Post Office Department in 1832 and was unable to complete the maps for the atlas. Thomas Illman assumed responsibility to complete the atlas, publishing it in 1835 using the New York firm of D.S. Stone. The imprint of Illman & Pilbrow is below the neatline.
