London: C. Smith, July, 1824. 
Mounted on linen, 32 x 24 inches, in the original paper slipcase bearing C. Smith's decorative label. Slipcase is quite chipped at edges, but intact. The Chart is uniformly quite foxed and yellowed, but very good otherwise. Engraved by Gardner. Published by C. Smith, Mapseller, 172 Strand, London. Very uncommon. WorldCat locates copies of the 1825 and 1830 editions published by Smith (which correct the misspelled "Accompained" in the title), but no copy of this 1824 edition.
