British Possessions in North America from the best authorities by Samuel Lewis
Includes large inset map of Hudson's and Baffin's Bays.
While this map was published in 2 different atlases, comparing our copy with both copies available on the David Rumsey web site, it is evident our copy of from Carey's copy of Guthrie rather than Carey's General Atlas. This map uses two prime meridians; one is in Philadelphia, and the other is in London.
1 map : colored ; 39 x 45 cm
The presence of "Engraved for Carey’s American Edition of Guthrie’s Geography improved” centered above the neat line differs this version from the 1st state and the absence of a plate number in the upper right indicates this is the 2nd state. (Kershaw 391)
