T. Laurie Murray was a surveyor, publisher and founder member of the Royal Geographical Society. His major cartographic work was this English county atlas entitled ‘An Atlas of the English Counties’ first published in 1830. It contained forty-four maps engraved by Hoare and Reeves and identifying Murray as publisher. The second edition offered here, was issued the following year and involved the imprint dates being altered to each plate. The further history of the plates is murky, particularly after they left Murray’s possession. They appear in the hands of William Robson. Beresiner pp. 164-5; Chubb 420; Tooley’s Dictionary (1999-2004).
