Edition Notes

This map first appeared in 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. It might also be from Carey's Pocket Atlas (Philadelphia: M. Carey, 1802). Needs to be researched if this map appeared in all editions or if can be identified as coming from one in particular.
