It is generally believed that the London editions did not have the map found in the prior Philadelpia edition. However, this copy has the map impression on the title page and a few succeeding pages indicating clearly that it did have a map. However none of the listings for the London edition we located had a map. "These letters were written to friends and inquirers in England and contain a wealth of information about economic and social conditions in the West" - Buck. Howes B-467. Buck 105.
