This is page 185/186 from the Britannia Depicta Atlas - the maps were engraved on both sides of each page by Emanuel Bowen who was one of the most skilled and prolific engravers of the 18th Century. The maps can be double glazed, thus the customer has a choice of two maps. The publisher of the Atlas was a John Owen, hence the term Owen and Bowen to describe maps from the work. The appreciation rate of this series of maps over the past 20 years has been remarkable. (John Booth; 'Lookng at Old Maps'). One small tear with loss to the left-hand top corner of the blank margins, NOT Seen as covered by the mount. Overall EXCELLENT clear impression - No foxing. See Images. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall .
