Following the success of the earlier published ‘Large English Atlas’, Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Kitchin undertook a ‘smaller’ folio version entitled the ‘Royal English Atlas’. It was not a commercial success and as such is much rarer than its predecessor. Indeed the first edition is only known in 6 examples. The imprint below the map indicates that this example is in its second state as issued in the second edition issued c.1778. The imprint bears a wonderful collection of the key cartographers of the day. A good example of a very rare map. Deadman (2010) pp. 82-3; Deadman (2012) pp. 86-7; Hodson 234 p. 24 state 2; Shirley BL T.Bow-4b; Worms & Baynton-Williams (2011).
