....................................................

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 "Universal Atlas" in 1808.
Cary's Traveller's Companion was first published in 1790. It proved very popular as a pocket road book, and ran to several editions up to c 1828. The plates were re-engraved for the editions of 1806 and 1822. This example is from the 1819 edition.
