Bedfordshire : G.Bickham

click here to view a large version in a separate window

One of a unique and extraordinary series of maps designed by George Bickham for the elegant Georgian atlas, "The British Monarchy ...". Renowned for this publication and "The Universal Penman ...", the work demonstrates the calligraphic skills for which father and son Bickham, both named George, were acclaimed. Each engraving shows a pictorial representation of the county, with placenames superimposed, and is decorated with classical and rustic vignettes typifying that county. The atlas was begun as a part-work publication with each plate dated when published, but was not offered complete until 1755. The first state of the maps has a date engraved whereas the second edition of 1796 lacks both this date and the text below.
