A handcoloured map by Samuel Dunn, Teacher of mathematical Sciences in London and Member of the Philisophical Society in Philadelphia, in America. Besides being a mapmaker, Dunn was a sometimes publisher of maps and atlases, a mathematician, and a teacher. Dunn's mathematical inclinations are demonstrated on the precision of this fine map.
