A Modern Map Of Nottinghamshire
An attractive map of Nottinghamshire by Joseph Ellis. Ellis (d.1796) was a prolific English engraver of the late eighteenth century who joined with William Palmer to produce a set of English county maps, published in Ellis' "New English Atlas", in 1765. The maps were later used in Ellis' "English Atlas; or a Complete Cartography of England and Wales" published in 1766, and reprinted in 1768. Ellis engraved some of the maps himself, while others were engraved by Louis de la Rochette, Palmer and W. Fowler. The maps themselves were closely based on Kitchin's maps from Dodsley's "England Illustrated". Ellis' atlases were very popular, being often reprinted, as the maps are clearly and distinctively engraved with decorative title cartouches.
