Note
  • The numbers 176-177 are omitted in paging
  • One of the 12 plates mentioned in the title (the "map of the country of the savage nations, intended to be put, facing page 72") was reserved for publication with a second volume, which was, apparently, never published, although the author states in the "Advertisement" at end of v. 1 that v. 2 "is now in the press."
  • The "two whole sheet maps" were published separately, with date 1774. For a description of this chart of the coast of East and West Florida, see A list of maps of America in the Library of Congress, 1901, page 281
