A Map Of Cornwall From The Best Authorities : J. Cary / J. Stockdale

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and detailed map of Cornwall with an inset of the Isles of Scilly. The map was first published in 1789 (with a second edition in 1806) of Gough's enlarged version of William Camden's "Britannia". The map was printed for John Stockdale, Piccadilly, by J.Nichols and son. John Stockdale, an important London publisher who also edited and published the works of Dr Samuel Johnson, had also published these maps in his "New British Atlas" of 1805 and this is an example from that work. Cary's maps are of a very high technical standard, being finely engraved, but are also designed to be functional, striving for accuracy rather than decoration. One repaired marginal nick, otherwise fine.
