From Cary's New and Correct English Atlas

The significance of some towns being underlined in red is given by the previous owner of the atlas John Hobson Matthews by means of a manuscript note in red ink he has added at the start of the atlas. He says

The places underlined in red ink are those in which a Catholic mission has been established between the era of the Reformation and the year 1840

John Hobson Matthews (1858 - 1914) Born in Croydon in 1858. Educated at schools at Blackheath and Cambridge. Worked for a shipping firm in Malta. A good linguist he was a Roman Catholic historian, archivist and solicitor. You will find more details about him here in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography.

Published in the Reign of Queen Victoria

31382 Oxfordshire, Reuben Ramble, c.1845. Price: 105.00

OXFORDSHIRE. An uncommon lithograph miniature map of the county surrounded by a wide border of vignette views of local scenes including the Oxford, St. Mary’s Church, Christchurch, Radcliffe Library and Blenheim. The maps first appeared in Miller’s New Miniature Atlas published in 1810. The decorative views were added and the maps republished by Darton & Clark in “Reuben Ramble’s Travels Through the Counties of England” in 1844. 5 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches. This is the size of overall area and not the contained map. Original hand colouring. With this map is the original double sided page of text describing the county.

Reuben Ramble was a pseudonym of the Reverend Samuel Clark (1810 - 1875). The Rector of Eaton-Bishop in Herefordshire and later a curate in Northamptonshire. He wrote geography books for children being in partnership with the publisher William Darton from c.1836 to 1843. Many copies of Reuben Ramble's Travels will no doubt have been lost over the years through mistreatment by children. I have seen specimens with drawings, scribbles and doodles during the time I have been dealing in maps. A whimsical addition for your map collection.

From Bowles’s New Medium English Atlas

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
