A detailed map of Turin published by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. The Society was founded by John, Earl Russell, and Henry Brougham, later Lord Chancellor of England in 1827. The Society's main purpose was to encourage universal literacy by publishing numbers of books of good quality that would be affordable to all. These town plans were published in perhaps the grandest of the Society's publications - their atlas entitled "Maps Of The Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge", first issued by Baldwin and Cradock, and then re-issued by other publishers, including Chapman and Hall and latterly Edward Stanford. This map of Turin includes three vignette, a view of Turin, a view of a Church called La Superga near Turin, and the Royal Palace. The map was engraved by J.Henshall after W.B.Clarke
