Including the most recent discoveries, and political alterations. Digested on a new plan. By John Pinkerton. The astronomical introduction by the Rev. S. Vince … with numerous maps, drawn under the direction, and with the latest improvements, of Arrowsmith, and engraved by Lowry. To the whole are added, a catalogue of the best maps, and books of travels and voyages, in all languages, and an ample index. In two volumes. 1802
