DESCRIPTION : THIS RATHER CRUDELY DRAWN SMALL MAP COVERING FROM "C.

A NUMBER OF INDIAN TRIBE NAMES, TAKEN FROM SMITH'S MAP (SEE MAP # 112S5) ARE SHOWN. THE SECOND EDITION OF THIS MAP FIRST APPEARED IN MALLET'S DESCRIPTION DE L'UNIVERS..., FRANCKFURT, DAVID JEAN ZUNNER, 1686. LATER IT APPEARED IN AN ATLAS ENTITLED BESCHREIBUNG DES GANTZEN WELTKREISES, FRANCKFURT, J.A. JUNG, 1719 (SEE MAP # 219M5). A CLOSE EXAMINATION OF THE TWO MAPS INDICATES THAT THEY WERE UNCHANGED EXCEPT FOR PLATE WEAR AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS TWO ISSUES OF THE SAME PLATE.

DATA IS FROM PERSONAL OBSERVATION OF THE COPIES IN THE HUNTINGFIELD COLLECTION AND FROM PHOTOCOPIES.
