This series of maps was first published as ‘The National Gazetteer’ which was issued in parts from 1863-68. William Hughes (1817-76) was Professor of Geography in King’s College, London from 1863-75. Interestingly Hughes worked at the British Museum as a cataloguer between 1841-43 working on geography books. The publishers were the firm of Virtue and Co. founded by George Virtue. This new atlas edited by Professor Keane is in a larger format with the maps edge bound. There is only the one edition of this work. Batten & Bennett (2000) 144; Carroll (1996) 126.
