Shropshire : J. Harrison

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An uncommon and detailed map of Shropshire that appeared in Harrison's atlas, "Maps Of The English Counties". The atlas was published in just two editions - of 1791 and 1792. Many of the maps from the atlas have earlier dates in their imprints reflecting the date of the completion of the draught and engraving by Haywood (sometimes Heywood) and Sudlow. Although lacking decorative embellishments, these attractive and interesting maps reflect the transition from the elaborate works of the mid-eighteenth century to the more function-focused works of the next. An attractive example with repaired tear not affecting map detail.
