This reduced version of Kitchin's map first published in 1777 provides excellent detail in the Southwest and extends along the southern coast to Florida. Texas is a part of the larger region of San Luis Potosi. It shows the range of the Apache, Hopi (Moqui), Teguas, Chocktaw tribes, and a few more. Good watershed and topographical detail. Northern California is New Albion and the area to the east is blank. The Great Salt Lake is alluded to with a shaded area labeled "Lake the western limits of which are unknown." The map includes the inset "Environs of Mexico City," which details the bridges in the Lake of Mexico.
