Note:
60 maps on 76 sheets; lacks title page, has index. Maps dated 1794-1804. Many of the maps are updated from Kitchin's 36 sheet General Atlas, and the American Atlas. In 1796 and 1800 Laurie and Whittle published their New and Elegant Imperial Sheet Atlas (P6009, 6016), with 50 maps all, we believe on a single sheet, with a different map of the U.S. showing the American Flag above the cartouche. The Universal Atlas was their biggest production, with many of the maps multi sheet. Outline color. Atlas is bound in new quarter leather orange cloth covered boards with a red leather label on the spine stamped with "Atlas. Laurie. Whittle." in gilt.
