This is the second state of this map drawn by Anderson and strongly engraved by John Scoles. It shows all of Maryland and Delaware, as well as northern Virginia, southern Pennsylvania, and part of southern New Jersey. The inset, Continuation of the Potomac River from Fort Cumberland, extends farther west. The title appears in a circular cartouche, and the distance scale is in American Miles. This map is identical (except for date and imprint) to Payne's map from the 1799 edition of New and Complete Universal Geography, which itself was derived from the Samuel Lewis map of 1795.
