Additional Details

Sartine's map follows Anthony Smith's of 1776, as indicated in the title. As the Smith map is virtually unobtainable, Sartine's chart is the nearest map available to a collector. State 1 of 2. Morrison, On the Map, figure 40; Sanchez-Saavedra, A Description of the Country, page 41.
