Notes: This is 2 half maps split, the images have been digitally stitched in 2007; Derived from D'Anville 1749, and Sayer 1787; When Laurie and Whittle took over the business of Robert Sayer they updated his 'General Atlas' with many new maps and issued it as 'A New Universal Atlas'. It is from this latter work that this map derives. Shirley BL Atlases T.Lau 1a nos. 53 & 54. [Coss]
