This large scale four-sheet map of Yorkshire was first published in John Cary’s ‘New English Atlas’, 1809. The general title highlights Cary’s role and inclusion of the roads surveyed for the Postmaster General. A second edition was published in 1811 in which this map was issued. The only notable difference is the alteration of the date in the title. This map would famously be used by William Smith to produce the first geological map of the county. The size of the map enabled a scale of just under 3 miles to the inch. Chubb (1927) 333; not in Rawnsley (1970); Worms & Baynton-Williams (2011).
