Archibald Fullarton (1809 -1896) originally published his Royal Illustrated Atlas from 1852 as a part work and it remains an iconic atlas characterized by finely detailed engraving and wonderful illustrations. Even the maps lacking illustrations are delicately coloured in pastel shades and are widely collected for their decorative appeal.
