Somersetshire : J. Cary

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A detailed map of Somerset from John Cary's "New And Correct Atlas". Cary was a renowned and active map engraver and publisher, working between 1787 and 1834 in London. John Cary was apprenticed to William Palmer, a noted engraver, in 1770, and soon gained a reputation as a maker of globes, both terrestrial and celestial, becoming the foremost globe-maker of his day. He is best known for five atlases that he engraved and published. Four were county atlases of England and Wales, including the "New And Correct Atlas", in which this map was published, while the fifth was a world atlas, the "New Universal Atlas", published in 1808. 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, which emphasises the detail, the accomplished engraving and the clarity of presentation.
