Catalogue Of Atlases And Maps ... Edward Stanford : E.Stanford

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An interesting sixteen page stock catalogue from Edward Stanford at 6 Charing Cross. As well as regular atlases and maps the catalogue also includes the "Harrow School Atlas" which was designed by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge for use in Harrow School "by the desire of the Head and other Masters". The catalogue also details emigrant guides and illustrates some of the globes available for sale. Such ephemeral survivals from the map trade are scarce and provide an interesting and insightful record of business at this time.
