This map appeared in Volume IV of John Payne's New and Complete Universal Geography… published in New York by John Low at the Shakespeare Head, No. 332 Water-Street, in 1799. Following the publication of Carey's American Atlas in 1795, there were a small group of 18th Century works which included a complete set of state maps, including John Reid's American Atlas, Joseph T.
