A New And Accurate Map Of The Empire Of Japan ... : E. Bowen

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive map of Japan annotated with textual notes intended to bring this distant destination alive to the English audience. The title cartouche is flanked by figures in traditional dress further aiding understanding of much more than the country's geography. Emanuel Bowen (c.1693/1694-1767) was an English engraver, publisher and mapseller, active in London between 1720 and 1767. His prolific output both as engraver and publisher earned him recognition both in England and France, for he held the dual appointment of Engraver to both George II and Louis XV of France. Bowen engraved large numbers of maps for general atlases, geographical text-books and periodicals, particularly "The Complete System of Geography", the "Universal History of the World", the small-format periodical "The General Magazine of Arts and Sciences" and the "Complete Atlas". Bowen also produced a large number of English county maps. Bowen maps are typically clear yet detailed, are often found with decorative title cartouches, and are offered here with attractive later hand colour.
