The Puffin maps were drawn by Juliet Renny. The full story is in Wayne Hammond's Bibliography. The changes were made by Evgenia, who wanted Penguin (and indeed Cape) to 'expunge from the book all work by Steven Spurrier'. She maintained AR had intended to redraw the maps himself before the Puffin edition, but was prevented by illness. He had done a sketch for a Wild Cat Island map in SD, and Renny used that as a basis.
Spurrier's map lives on, however, and is familiar to all members of TARS. It is used for the cover of Mixed Moss, their annual journal.
