An accurate map of Devonshire divided... : E. Bowen

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A magnificent large scale and detailed map of Devonshire from "The Large English Atlas", one of the finest, if not the finest, county atlases of the eighteenth century. Emanuel Bowen's maps are remarkable for the fine detail and clarity of the engraving and for the use of otherwise empty space to impart information - thus, the map is illustrated with a plan of Plymouth, a detailed key to symbols, lists and panels of text and a large pictorial cartouche showing a finely engraved coastal scene, complete with apple tree and press, fishermen and boats, nets and winch, fish, coral and lantern. The whole designed in an artistic and elegant Georgian style. The importance and popularity of the publication is attested to by the many editions in which the atlas was published . This map, first published in 1749, is from an issue of about 1767 as indicated by the imprint of publishers Bowles and Sayer, beneath this, fascinating, map. There is minor reinforcement to a lower centrefold split, as often and to the upper margin.
