click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and detailed map of some of the African islands by Emanuel Bowen (c.1693-1767) an English engraver, publisher and mapseller, active in London from about 1720. The islands include St Helena, Madeira, Tenerife, Malta and the Cape Verde islands. Bowen's 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" and the "Universal History of the World", in which this map was published, and the small-format periodical "The General Magazine of Arts and Sciences". Bowen also produced a large number of English county maps. Bowen maps are typically clear yet detailed, and often found with decorative title cartouches, illustrated with relevant imagery. An interesting and decorative map.
