County Maps

Henry Teesdale was a respected and well established map publisher working from two addresses in London. He was a Founder Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. To the collectors of British county maps he is best known for his 'New British Atlas' published in 1829 by Henry Teedale & Co. The maps had appeared earlier in 'The English Atlas' published by R. Rowe in 1816. On acquiing the plates Teedale removed the name of the engraver T. Barnett and added his own name. Slight changes were made to some other plates but otherwise the maps were unaltered. The 1829 edition appears to have sold well as there was a further edition of 'New British Atlas' corrected to 1831. The atlas title was was changed to 'Improved Edition of New British Atlas' in 1832. The maps appeared again in 1849 after the plates had been acquired by Henry Collins and the atlas title returned to 'New British Atlas'. The maps appeared again in 'The British Gazetteer' in 1852 with added floral decorations.

As well as this eries of county maps he produced a number of large scale English maps as well as 'New General of of the World' 1831 -35.

Just my personal opinion

I have always liked these county maps by Henry Teesdale. They are detailed and of a good size, clearly engraved and the early outline and wash hand colouring can be very attractive. A good map to start a county map collection.

Richard and Nelson

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.
