A detailed and interesting nineteenth century map of northern India published in a late edition of the atlas of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. The area shown in detail includes north from Benares to the Chinese border with Nepal and Kathmandu. The Society was one of many Christian charities formed to aid the education of the British lower classes and its atlas of world maps proved one of the most successful and long-lived publications of the time being issued from around 1834 to 1880. The Society was founded by John, Earl Russell, and Henry Brougham, later Lord Chancellor of England in 1827. The Society's main purpose was to encourage universal literacy, by publishing books of good quality that would be affordable to the poor. Perhaps the grandest of their publications was their atlas, originally entitled "Maps Of The Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge". It was first issued by Baldwin and Craddock, and then re-issued by other publishers, here Thomas Letts. A good fresh example with negligible library blind-stamp at lower corner.
