I do not have a precise answer but Christophe Ebeling was the one who
commissioned Sotzmann, and the former's collection was purchased and
donated to Harvard in 1818, forming the beginnings of their map
collection (http://oasis.lib.harvard.edu/oasis/deliver/~hou02444). They
have engraved images online, but you might ask them if they have any of
the manuscript maps. Maybe someone on this list will have a direct
answer (and I would be curious myself).
