Detailed maps and plans of Malta and Goze, the Cape Verde Islands, Teneriffe, Madeira, St.Helena, Table Bay, the fort at the Cape of Good Hope and the Bay of Agoa de Saldanha. Emanuel Bowen (c.1693/1694-1767) was an English engraver, publisher and mapseller, active in London between 1720 and 1767. His prolific output both as engraver and publisher earned him recognition both in England and France, for he held the dual appointment of Engraver to both George II and Louis XV of France. Bowen engraved large numbers of maps for general atlases, geographical text-books and periodicals, particularly "The Complete System of Geography", the "Universal History of the World", the small-format periodical "The General Magazine of Arts and Sciences" and the "Complete Atlas". Bowen also produced a large number of English county maps. Bowen maps are typically clear yet detailed, are often found with decorative title cartouches, and are offered here with attractive later hand colour.
