Lampriere's original Survey of the Bermudas, or the Summer Islands, was completed in 1738 and was a major advance on earlier 17th century Dutch charts of the island. The chart's influence on all subsequent published maps and charts of Bermuda is quite evident in composition and detail. The original version of this chart was first published in 1738 and bore the title: 'To his Excellency / Alured Popple Esq. / Governour of Bermuda, or the Summer Islands / This Map / From a new Survey, Correcting y.e Dangerous Errors / in all y.e CHARTS of that Place hitherto Publish'd / Is humbly Dedicated by / C. Lempriere, and W.H. Toms. 1738.' It was subsequently published by Sayer in 1775 and then Laurie & Whittle in 1797. This edition was released by the Laurie publishing house in 1826 after the company had become the sole propriety of the Laurie family.
