Lancashire : B. Clarke / H. G. Collins

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A detailed and decorative nineteenth-century map of Lancashire published in the atlas, "The British Gazetteer, Political, Commercial, Ecclesiastical, And Historical ..." in 1852. These lithograph maps bear the imprint of H.G.Collins in Paternoster Row and show accurate geographical detail, including the expanding railway network, surrounded by a floral border. Information also includes the navigable canal routes, turnpike and mail coach roads as well as parliamentary boundaries and polling places, the seats of the nobility and the gentry, and market towns with their distances from London. The maps are lithographic versions of Robert Rowe's county maps that were published from engraved copperplates between 1814 and 1842. Collins also published these lithograph versions in 1848 in the "New British Atlas" and they were subsequently reused by Philip in his "County Atlas ..." in the 1860s - their use in a variety of publications is testament to their popularity.
