Notes Cassini's uncommon six-sheet map of the United States from his "Huovo Atlante Geografico Universale". Cassini drew largely from the Zatta-Mitchell map of North America. "The map presents a fair summary of what continental Europeans understood of the new-born United States at the end of the 18th century." Each sheet has a separate illustrated title cartouche, and in the bottom right corner is and inset of Newfoundland. The map is quite detailed, and includes roads and topography in addition to many place-names. The native tribes are noted, and the forts and roads are located along with a number of towns.
