British Columbia : Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and detailed map of British Columbia engraved for the Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge - SDUK. The Society began in 1826, the concept of a Scottish lawyer Henry Brougham, conscious of the need for affordable publications to satisfy and educate an expanding British population of increasing wealth, literacy and travel expectations. Over 200 maps and plans were produced, first sold as part works on subscription and from 1844 in a variety of bound atlases. This map appeared in "Complete Atlas" published by Thomas Letts. As one of the maps added to the original nucleus of SDUK publications, this is one of the earliest maps of this newly discovered region and recently named and defined Province.
