THE SEVEN VOLUMES WERE PUBLISHED AT DIFFERENT TIMES FROM 1705 TO 1720. VOLUME 6 WAS ISSUED IN 1719. THE ATLAS WAS REISSUED AND UPDATED FROM 1732 TO 1739. VOLUME 6 WAS REISSUED IN AUGUST, 1732. THE ITEM WAS # 26 IN BOTH EDITIONS.

ONLY TWO OF THE EIGHT INSETS ARE OF ANY INTEREST TO A MARYLAND-CHESAPEAKE COLLECTION, "NOUVELLE CARTE DE LA CAROLINE" IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER AND "NOUVELLE CARTE DE LA PENSYLVANIE MARYLAND VIRGINIE ET NOUVELLE IARSEY" AT THE CENTER RIGHT SIDE. THE CAROLINA INSET HAS A SMALL REPRESENTATION OF MARYLAND AND THE CHESAPEAKE BAY. IT IS HIGHLY INACCURATE. IT CONTAINS SEVERAL COUNTY NAMES FOR MARYLAND. BOTH INSET MAPS APPEAR VERY SIMILAR TO ROBERT MORDEN'S MAPS WHICH WERE ALSO INCLUDED IN SEVERAL OF BLOME'S EDITIONS OF L'AMERIQUE ANGLOISE... IN THE 1680S. CUMMING INDICATES THAT THE CAROLINA INSET HAS THE LEDERER 1672 MATERIAL. THE PENNSYLVANIA INSET IS A LARGER SCALE REPRESENTATION OF MOST OF MARYLAND AND ALL OF THE BAY, BUT IS ALSO QUITE INACCURATE. ONE INTERESTING FEATURE IS THE EXTREMELY LARGE LAKE OR INLET SHOWN ON THE SOUTHERN EASTERN SHORE OF MARYLAND AND DELAWARE. THIS INSET CONTAINS A KEY TO 30 GEOGRAPHICAL FEATURES (29 COUNTY NAMES AND ONE RIVER) FOR THE STATES SHOWN. BELOW THE MAP IS AN ENGRAVED TEXT DESCRIBING PENNSYLVANIA.

DATA IS FROM PHILLILPS ATLASES, CUMMING, VERNER, AND FROM OBSERVATION OF THE HUNTINGFIELD COPY.
