A Map of
HEREFORDSHIRE
From The Best Authorities
by
John Cary
Published by John Stockdale London 1806, in the Richard Gough edition of the celebrated Camden's Brittania.
An attractive and good sized copper engraved county map of Herefordshire with a scale of statute miles and compass rose. Dated (1805) and credited to Cary in the plate. The larger format allows for a high level of detail as can be appreciated from the close up image below.
A small edge tear has been repaired verso, and the right hand margin has been reinstated to facilitate mounting/matting, although all borders are intact. The map bears fold lines as issued, and an unobtrusive library blind stamp appears top left. A crisp, dark impression printed on good quality heavy grade wove paper, blank verso.
Approx. 20" x 16" (500mm x 400mm) map area only with margins beyond.
John Cary (1754 - 1835) was a highly prolific and successful map maker. His fine engraving skills were well employed in producing accurate and usable maps, without over embellishment or unnecessary adornment. Initially he worked from his premises in London's Strand until a disastrous fire in 1820 forced him to move to St. James street. His finest works were perhaps the "General Atlas of The World" and the elegant "Universal Atlas" in 1808. The "New and Correct English Atlas" was first published in 1787 and subsequent editions followed into the early 19th century. After his death in 1835 the business was acquired by C.F.Cruchley.
