THE SMALL ENGLISH ATLAS

Title page to The Small English Atlas 1749
Preface page to The Small English Atlas 1749

1749 saw the publication of The Small English Atlas
with a series of English county maps by Thomas Kitchin and Thomas Jeffreys.

A delightful 8vo atlas for the 18th century traveller. The maps have a distinctive style with a panel of text beneath which gives a brief description of the county followed by a list of the main towns with details of Members of Parliament, Fairs and Market Days. No doubt a popular atlas in its day, first published in 1749 and again in 1751. More editions in 1775, 1785 1787 and the final edition published by Laurie and Whittle in 1794. with a reissue in 1796.

All the maps illustrated below have been photographed from a copy of the atlas in my collection. The maps are all uncoloured but you will come across specimens where the map has early outline hand colouring and in some cases wash colouring as well.

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.
