This version of the map does not match any described in established cartobibliographic works. McCorkle (755:11) describes and shows 3 states, none of which are a match for ours. The Boston Public Library does have a match for ours and estimates a publication date of 1760. We have not been able to independently verify this conclusion. Versions of this map were also issued German, Italian and Spanish. In his notes, Walter describes this map as rare.
