recent arrival
Emanuel Bowen's maps represent a refining of the English cartographic style during the mid-eighteenth century. Surrounded by an austere border, his plates contain a high level of detail, interspered with passages of relevant infomation. Decoration is confined to the title cartouche, which incorporates into its design some historical or social aspect of the land described - here an array of wild animals. Bowen (c.1693-1767) was a prolific mapmaker who collaborated with many of the other leading mapmakers of the time. He produced an important English atlas, many separately issued maps, and a world atlas, published under various titles. He was succeeded by his son, Thomas.
