Description
Kashnor notes, "This is copied from the engraving of the D'Anville map issued by Jefferys in 1755. The old boundaries of North and South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia, are the same, and the old statement regarding the right of these colonies to the land to the west of the Mississippi is engraved in Dutch [German]. The map was probably issued on account of the demand occasioned by the Revolution. The names of locations are, in many instances, in English, otherwise the old French names are given." MS note: 4. Prime meridian: London. Relief: pictorial. Graphic Scale: Miles, leagues. Projection: Pseudocylindrical. Printing Process: Copper engraving. Verso Text: Ms note: 314.
