Thomas Kitchin was one of the most notable English cartographers of the eighteenth century. He was both an engraver and publisher of considerable reputation who was made Hydrographer to King George III. He worked with many of his contemporaries on various projects. In 1764 Robert and James Dodsley published the two volume ‘England Illustrated’ utilising 54 maps engraved by Kitchin. Each map was accompanied by descriptive text of the county with topographical engravings by others. The maps give remarkable detail of major roads, each having a decorative cartouche. The same maps were re-issued in 1765 by James Dodsley as ‘Kitchen’s English Atlas’. Hodson (1984-97) 231.
