A WORLD OF ANTIQUE MAPS AND PRINTS

Image

Joseph Ellis was an engraver and publisher from Clerkenwell in London and was apprenticed to Richard William Seale in 1749. He is best know to county map collectors for The New English Atlas published in 1765 which was later reissued as Ellis's English Atlas in 1766, 1768 1777, 1786, 1790 and 1796. According to the title page the price of the atlas in 1766 was 10s. 6d bound in Red leather for the Pocket. There is a recorded copy of a reissue possibly in 1766 where the price has been increased to 15 shillings, again in a Red Leather for the Pocket,

The maps are similar in style to a series by Thomas Kitchin but easily distinguishably as the name of Ellis appears on many but not all of the maps. The name of William Palmer appears on Buckinghamshire, Herefordshire, Kent and Warwickshire. Cornwall bears the name of De La Rochette. Worcestershire bears the name of William Fowler

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.
