Frontispiece: In Scrapbook E in the Simms Collection at the South Caroliniana
Library, there is a page bearing a map done in pencil by Simms. It appears to
be a map of the action of his novel Joscelyn. To my knowledge, no scholar has
made use of it. This reproduction does not pick up the very light pencillings
but most of them are discernible in the original. The map shows the Silver
Bluff, SC vicinity, home of Simms's friend, Gov. Hammond.
