The maps in this atlas are based on the maps by Emanuel and Thomas Bowen in their Atlas Anglicanus. The title cartouche has been changed as well as the addition of the distance in miles from London shown by some town names.

Provenance: This map comes from an atlas which was once in the library of the renowned carto-bibliographer Sir Herbert George Fordham (1854 - 1929). He was the first to attempt the systematic cataloguing of the maps of an English county. Born on 9th May 1854 at Odsey, a manor on the borders of Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire sold to the Fordham family in 1793 by the 5th Duke of Devonshire. The flyleaf of the atlas was signed H.George Fordham, Odsey, 1925. Further reading: Map Collectors' Circle No. 51: Sir H.George Fordham Carto-bibliographer by J. M. Henshall.

The atlas was later in the library of Professor Eva Germaine Remington Taylor (1879 - 1966) Distinguished geographer. Presented after her death to Birbeck College, University of London. Sold by their order at Sotheby's, London and purchased by Richard Nicholson

A good detailed engraved county map. Title panel and compass rose combined. Publishers imprint beneath dated 1793. 8 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Original outline hand colouring. Good condition. I have dated this map 1802 because the paper is watermarked 1802. The title page of the atlas is dated 1793.
