Notes An early nineteenth century French map of the Eastern United States, the Yucatan peninsula, and the Greater Antilles, from the Atlas Supplementaire du Precis de la Geographie Universelle de M. Malte-Brun by M. Lapie. The borders of individual states, territories, and islands are outlined in hand colour, and the title appears emblazoned on the shield of a classical figure, likely Athena or Nike, though wearing the cap of liberty rather than the customary helmet or laurel wreath.

Jean Baptiste Marie Chamouin (1768-c.1845) was a French engraver and mapmaker, known predominantly for his engraved views of Paris.
