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.

Looking at Old Maps by John Booth

This is John Booth's second book that was published in 1979, two years after his book on Welsh Maps. My copy is the first edition in which is a loose sheet giving a guide to prices. The format is very similar with a write up on a cartographer and a full page example illustration opposite. Lots of useful information and a very good introductory book for the collector of county maps. Recommended. Again click on the Amazon link provided and treat yourself to a copy.
