Reproduction. This appears to be the earliest plagiarism of Evans map. Kitchin made a new plate incorporating Evans' map but eliminating the dedication and replacing it with words from Evans' Analysis (see Preface). Several other statements are also lifted from that source, but in some cases abridged, to show the French as usurpers of British territory. This appears to be the only photo-reproduction in this set of maps, the rest being original copper plate engravings. Note slightly wider but also shorter than 18213. Pownall in his later discussion thought this variant was first done by Thomas Jefferys and criticized the haphazard mountains and poorer engraving. See 18215 by Jefferys from same plate. Submap: A sketch of the Remaining part of the Ohio R., &c. MS note: 18214 Stamp: British Museum, 6 April 1892. Prime meridian: London, Philadelphia. Relief: pictorial. Graphic Scale: Miles. Projection: Pseudocylindrical. Printing Process: Photographic reproduction. Verso Text: Stamped: III. MS notes: Shelve with #18212 Evans, Lewis ; #18214.
