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.
