Map 18216 is an anonymous copy printed about 1760. That plate has now been modified by the inclusion of a border around the title, the elimination of New France from the title and map face and the addition of John and Carinton Bowles names just below the title. This adds credence to Stevens' thought that 18216 is a proof copy, never issued until this plate was completed. Carington Bowles apparently succeeded his uncle Thomas Bowles in 1764 or 1765.
