An attractive map of Wiltshire, engraved by W. Fowler and published in "Ellis's English Atlas", printed for Robert Sayer in Fleet Street & Carington Bowles in St. Pauls Churchyard. Borough towns are shown with stars identifying the number of members returned to parliament and "Places where Fairs are kept have a Line under the Name thus". Ellis (d.1796) was a prolific English engraver of the late eighteenth century who joined with William Palmer to produce a set of English county maps, published in Ellis' "New English Atlas", in 1765. Ellis' atlases were very popular, being often reprinted, as the maps are clearly and distinctively engraved with decorative title cartouches.
