YORK

 By John Rapkin.

Drawn & engraved by John Rapkin for "The Illustrated Atlas and Modern History of the World" by Martin Montgomery.

Published London circa 1850 by The London Printing and Publishing Company.

An attractive and decorative street plan of York, England, illustrated with vignette engravings of The Minster, Walmgate Bar, Archbishop's Palace, The Castle, Museum, Railway Station, Micklegate Bar, Ruins of St.Mary's Abbey and Guildhall with Ouse Bridge.

The level of detail includes all street names and many individual buildings which can be appreciated from the close up images provided.
 
  Rapkin's beautifully illustrated town plans are only included in a minority of the Montgomery Martin atlases and are consequently quite scarce and highly sought after.
 

Fine condition other than minor age blemishes. Free of repairs or restoration.

Approx. 14.5" x 10.5" (370mm x 260mm)overall

Printed on heavy grade paper, blank verso and unfolded.


John Rapkin was a mapmaker who paid great attention to the aesthetic value of his work as well as cartographic content.  His fine maps are distinguished by the trademark decorative borders, vignettes and title displays. Rapkin worked in close association with the equally respected publisher John Tallis. The publishing rights of many of the maps passed to The London Printing and Publishing Company circa 1850.
