click here to view a large version in a separate window

A nineteenth-century town plan of Boston, Massachusetts, ("population 85,000)", engraved by B.R.Davies in the sophisticated style of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. The S.D.U.K. was founded by John, Earl Russell and Henry Brougham, later Lord Chancellor of England in 1827. The Society's main purpose was to encourage universal literacy by publishing numbers of books of good quality, but that would be affordable for the poor. Perhaps the grandest of their publications was their atlas, originally entitled "Maps Of The Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge", was first issued by Baldwin and Cradock, and then re-issued by other publishers, latterly Edward Stanford. This is the first edition of a town that underwent an amazing reclamation transformation. Slight age discolouration and staining in top margin, not affecting the printed surface.
