The Large English Atlas or, A New Set of Maps of all the Counties in England and Wales

LIST OF MAPS IN THE ATLAS

There were a number of editions of The Large English Atlas from 1755 to about 1787. I have found that the contents of the copies of the atlas I have handled over the years do vary. This list is take from a copy of the atlas in my own collection which has an added undated titlepage but which I am guessing is the 1787 edition. The usual way to date these maps is from the publishers imprint beneath each map.The early editions have the names of J. Tinney, T. Bowles, J. Bowles and Robert Sayer. Later editions have the names of Robert Wilkinson, Robert Sayer and Carington Bowles.

All of the Welsh county maps are half page in size and abut each other. So when you find a loose map it will either be with its county partner on the same printed sheet or it will be a single county with no blank margin on one side or with an added margin on one side.

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
