About This Item

R. Miller. Old Fish Street, St. Pauls. London. - No date 1810. FIRST EDITION. 18mo. (5.5 x 3.7 inches). Complete with 56 fine hand coloured maps. Decorative lettered title page, index, 12pp Publisher's catalogue at the rear.

Neat previous owner's name, dated 1833, on the title page, otherwise a clean copy throughout. Contemporary half dark green sheep with marbled paper on the boards. Plain spine ruled in gilt. The binding is rubbed, chipped and worn but has done it's job of protecting the book inside. Internally a lovely copy. The binding is poor but this is an unsophisticated copy of a scarce miniature atlas, with original hand colouring throughout.

Housed in a felt lined clam shell box, covered in dark green cloth and with a red morocco label, gilt.Although both the British Library, and Chubb's Bibliography of Printed maps in the atlases of Great Britain and Ireland date this atlas to 1810, this example was bound up later, with some of the titles advertised in the publisher's catalogue dating from the early 1820's. --- Chubb. CCCXL.
