MAP of the STATES of VIRGINIA, NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA and GEORGIA comprehending the SPANISH PROVINCES of EAST and WEST FLORIDA
Joseph PurcellJohn Vint
It's interesting that a map purporting to show treaty boundaries shows no boundaries between the states, but it's clearly representative of the time the map was made; the very first instance of this map by John Purcell was drawn circa 1788.
London is used as the prime meridian. Scale is measured in units of British miles 69 1/2 = 1 degree.

This map appears in various editions of Jeddidiah Morse's American Geography with a slightly different title and variations in the presentation of the cartouche. All of those, however, had a different publisher. Our copy is from John Vint's "A concise system of modern geography, or, A description of the terraqueous globe" according to Barbara McCorkle's "A carto-bibliography of the maps in eighteenth century British and American geography books".
