Notes

This attractive miniature atlas consists of a general map of England and Wales, and 40 maps of the English counties, together with maps of north and south Wales, and a map of the Isle of Wight. Although small, the maps show a great deal of information, including cities, market towns, towns, villages, gentlemen’s seats, parks, canals, rivers, roads, distances from London, and number of M.P.s. The atlas was first published by James Wallis in 1812, the present atlas is an example of the second edition, where plate numbers have been added to the county maps.
