Description
Kashnor notes, [Quotes first from Nairne (note spelling) in a letter to Charles Spencer, third Earl of Sutherland explaining he drew the map accurately from personal observations.] "There can be no question but that the map was engraved in a very limited issue for the use of the Government. We only know of one other copy, and apparently there is no record of the map or of Nairne. The details are engraved in this form, 'Chicasa, 600 men, Chactas, 700 men.... For such a map there is an enormous amount of information and the greatest authenticity. Nairne was a member of the House of Commons of South Carolina." [Three forts on the S. Carolina coast inked in.] Kashnor also notes,[No imprint but London, 1709-10] "By Capt. Tho. Nairn." Prime meridian: Charleston,SC. Relief: pictorial. Graphic Scale: Miles. Projection: Cylindrical. Printing Process: Copper engraving.
