This attractive map covres the cities of London and Westminster, and present-day north and west London. Emanuel Bowen was one of the most prolific map engravers active in London in the mid-eighteenth century. Beginning his career in about 1714 he continued into the 1760's producing maps of all parts of Britain and the world. Undoubtedly one of the most popular atlases of the early eighteenth century was that with maps engraved by Bowen for John Owen's "Britannia Depicta" -a pocket-sized atlas of county maps and strip road maps, based on John Ogilby's famous road book of 1675, and first published in 1720. This particular map comes from a 1724 edition of the "Britannia Depicta" and is immensely detailed and finely engraved with a decorated cartouche, information regarding market days and distances pertaining to the county shown.
