Edition Notes

From Carey's American Edition of Guthrie's Geography Improved (Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1795, first ed.). Subsequent editions were published in 1796, 1800, and at frequent intervals until 1818. Needs to be researched if this map appeared in all editions or if can be identified as coming from one in particular. Weak impression.
