British Isles : G. Phillips Bevan

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A scarce and interesting map of Britain and Ireland, printed in an innovative technique of embossed style on "plasticised" card to illustrate the physical relief of continent. The map appeared in a scarce atlas "Royal Relief Atlas Of All Parts Of The World" in which the physical relief of an area could be seen, and felt, to show the hills and mountain ranges. Many of the maps bear the imprint of Swan, Sonnenschein and Allen and some also have the imprint "Plastic School Atlas" - possibly a proposed but never-used title. Each map was bound with an additional card border to protect the raised embossed detail and may be accompanied by a page of geo-descriptive text. An attractive example of nineteenth-century printing experimentation.
