Notes

"Neatly engraved on ninety-three plates. Comprising eighty-seven charts"

"To the most noble Marquis Wellesley, of Wellesley in England, Earl of Mornington, in Ireland, Knight of the most illustrious order of St. Patrick, Governor General of India, this valuable collection of charts, particularly adapted for the navigation of ships eastward of the Cape of Good-Hope, is most respectfully dedicated by his Lordship's very obedient servants, Robert Laurie and James Whittle. Fleet-Street, London, 1800"--P. [3].

Most maps published by Laurie and Whittle, or William Heather, or Heather and Williams. Some maps by James Horsburgh.

Some maps engraved by J. Stephenson.

Plate number may differ to digitised version.

National Library of Australia's copy includes handwritten ms. notes inserted at plate nos. [50a, b, and c] of the atlas, and at pages 66, 67, and 68 of the digitised version. These notes appear to have been written at about the same time as the maps were published and provide supplementary navigational instructions. It is not known whether these refer to map plates [50a, b, and c].
