This Geographical Plan ... Saint Helena ..., Read, 1817

Read's St. Helena map (565 × 425 mm) was re-published a number of times after 1815. The example shown here was published in June 1817.

On these later maps the initial reference to Napoleon residing at Platantion House has been corrected; the Briars is indicated as the initial residence [detail], and Longwood House as the current residence [detail].

The National Maritime Museum has an image of the 1817 version of Read's map here.
